Double chocolate cookies (made with sweetened condensed milk)

Double chocolate cookies (made with sweetened condensed milk) / Cookies duplos de chocolate (feitos com leite condensado)

After a time consuming cake I thought you deserved an easy recipe, and these cookies are very, very easy; I have made tons of chocolate chip cookies so far but what made me curious about these was the sweetened condensed milk based dough - I'll just warn you that it is going to be very difficult not to eat the dough right out of the fridge by spoonful. :D

Double chocolate cookies (made with sweetened condensed milk)
from the great Delicious Magazine

200g good quality dark chocolate (minimum 50% cocoa solids)
50g unsalted butter
397g can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
225g all purpose flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
100g white chocolate chips or chunks

Break up the chocolate and gently melt it along with the butter in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. Stir in the condensed milk and vanilla, remove from the heat and cool completely. Mix in the flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate buttons and chill the mixture until firm enough to handle*.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Line two large baking sheets with baking paper.
Place leveled tablespoons of the mixture 5cm (2in) apart onto prepared sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes – the cookies should still look soft and will glisten. Don't overbake them as they soon become very hard. Cool in the sheets over a wire rack for 5 minutes, then carefully remove the cookies with a palette knife and cool on the rack.

* do not let it get too stiff – my dough was so hard it broke my cookie scoop :(

Makes about 45

Hi Patricia

Thanks for a delicious looking recipe! I just tried it, although very hesitantly as there is neither raising agent nor eggs in the mix. But - I allowed for the benefit of the doubt, so I made them according to the recipe. Now I see my suspicions confirmed, I think you might have meant self-raising flour as opposed to all-purpose (which as far as I know does not contain a raising agent). Am I right or have I just screwed up the cookies all on my own?
Concerned greetings,

Dear Heidi,
I am so sorry. You are right. The recipe was wrong. The baking powder was missing from it.
Thank you for warning me of the mistake. And my apologies again.

I've broken way too many cookie dough scoops in the last year!

These look delicious, I've never tried a sweetened condensed milk cookie dough.

Hi Patricia

No worries - will try them again some time and I'm sure they'll be delicious. And I'll still be checking out your blog for fresh inspiration;-)

What perfect cookies!

Valentina said...

Pat, how curious the condensed milk in the recipe. I'm here trying to figure out what the dough will be like. I guess I'll have to try that because seeing is believing.x

Laura said...

I am also totally intrigued by the sweetened condensed milk--pinning now! They look wonderful!

Lynna said...

Oh these cookies look wonderful! I`m tempted to try and see what condensed milk does to these cookies!

Also, i`m sorry your cookie scoop broke. Mine just broke as well.

How many eggs and how much sugar does the can of sweetened condensed milk replace in the cookie dough?
