Soft chocolate and cocoa cookies like are quick to prepare and require minimal effort.

The dough is made in about 30 minutes and the baking in 15 minutes.


Only an hour or so is lost in waiting for the dough to firm up in the refrigerator so that it is more easily malleable.

The processing can all be done manually.

The chocolate melts in a bain-marie or if you have it take advantage of the microwave.

It just takes a little patience to whip the butter with the sugar and for the eggs to soak in.
