Chocolate Crackles Healthy Version

These cookies are crispy on the outside and soft and chocolatey on the inside... very chocolatey and plain yummy without the guilt! Oh, okay kunting guilt lang, hehehe. This recipe stems from Martha Stewarts crackle cookie recipe. As you know I love to experiment on ingredients and make the original recipe its healthier version and I'm making this for my toddler as afternoon snack- only the best for the kiddo : )

Let's first prepare the ingredients....

Malagos premium unsweetened chocolate is single-origin cocoa liquor made from ethically grown
and processed cocoa beans than that have been carefully graded, fermented and solar-dried
 at our farm in Davao. - Malagos AgriVentures Corp., Philippines
I use the unsweetend malagos chocolate and callebaut chocolate to make it a bit customized.

Melt chocolates in the double boiler

and set aside to let cool...

While the chocolates cool prepare the dry ingredients - mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt until well combined.

 Set aside and beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs, vanilla extract and then the cooled chocolate. Add the dry ingredients alternate with milk.

Once it's all mixed together, divide the cookie dough in two parts. Wrap each part in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm or about 2 hours. I refrigerate mine overnight.( Forgot to take pictures on this part )

When ready to use, unwrap just one section at a time and divide the cookie dough batter. Grab one and roll into 1 inch ball. You need an assistant on this part because the chocolate will melt easily from the body temperature of your hands. 

Roll it in a granulated sugar first and then the powdered sugar and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes at a pre-heated 350 degrees oven.

Isn't that look delicious? So yummy, a bit crisp at the outside and soft and very chocolatey in the inside. Just the way I like it!

That's how the cookie crumble!

Happy yummy tummy!
