Instructions on how to get it prepared
Begin by heating the cookies:
Step 1: You should preheat the oven to exactly 350 degrees Fahrenheit and put the rack exactly in the middle of the preheated oven. Get line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and keep aside.
step 2: Mix the salt, baking powder and the flour in a medium bowl and keep aside.
Step 3: Now, get a small pot and place it on the stove and ensure the stove is on low heat. Now, ensure it is brought to a simmer.You should place a stainless steel bowl over the pot of simmering water.
Step 4: Now, you should add the chocolate chips and butter. Ensure they get completely melted, smooth and should look like pudding by occasionally stirring it.
Step 5: Now, get the cocoa powder, eggs and sugars, mix them with the chocolate/butter mixture once melted. Mix them in a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whist attachment. Mix for about 4 to 5 minutes. Ensure high mixture until the mixture get doubled in volume and has become very thick. It really needs to be thick.
Step 6: You should have the speed reduced to medium and combine the melted chocolate mixture with the eggs/sugar mixture. Ensure they are properly combined. It is time to add the vanilla extract.
Step 7: Get the speed reduced to low and add the flour mixture at the same time. Go ahead and mix until well combined. Now, fold in the milk chocolate chips.
Step 8: Get a teaspoon or a cookie scoop and add spoonfuls of dough onto the already prepared baking sheets.
Step 9: You should bake for about 10 minutes. In order to ensure even baking, rotate the pan halfway through. The cookies' tops must look crackled. The fact remains that the interior will remain soft and under-baked!
