Fudge Brownie Cookies
4.5 oz butter, chopped
7 oz milk or dark chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup plain flour
2 tablespoons self-raising flour
3.5 oz white chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Place butter and dark chocolate in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH (100%) for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth. Stir cocoa into warm mixture. Cool for 5 minutes.
Stir in eggs and sugar. Sift flours over mixture. Stir to combine. Fold in white chocolate and coconut. Roll heaped tablespoonfuls (see tip) into balls. Place on trays, allowing room to spread. Bake, 1 tray at a time, for 10 to 12 minutes or until tops are a little cracked. Stand for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
