Yesterday D offered me a piece of Sunfeast Dark Fantasy Chocofills and asked, “Isn’t it good?”, to which I replied in the affirmative. However, I wasn’t quite prepared for the question that followed. “Mama, can’t you make this???” That set me thinking….. Well, yeah I gotta try making this. Even though I have never done any experimentation in baking till date, I thought it was time to stretch my limit. After all it was a challenge…
After some brain racking, I formulated a recipe and set about. Though the appearance of the baked cookies seemed good, I kept my fingers crossed till D took his first bite. His BIG smile said it all.
Homemade Dark Fantasy Choco Fills
Flour- 1-1/4 cups + 1 tablespoon
Cocoa powder- 1/4 cup
Baking soda- 1/2 teaspoon
Butter- 1/2 cup
Salt- 1/2 teaspoon
Brown sugar- 3/4 cup
Milk- 1/4 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 teaspoon
Chocolate chunks- 1/2 cup
Preheat oven to 190C. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda a few times and keep aside. Beat the sugar and butter till creamy. Add the milk and vanilla essence and mix well. Add the flour mixture and mix till well blended. Take a spoonful of mixture and roll into a ball. Make a depression in the centre and place a chunk of chocolate. Cover and roll into a ball and flatten it. Place on a lined cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for about 12 – 15 minutes. Leave it to cool.
Tip:- I would recommend putting bigger chocolate chunks in the centre to get a gooey chocolaty core
