1/3 cup (60g) granulated sugar

  • Prep: 25 mins
  • Bake: 10 mins (With Fan) at 180°C

  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring often until it foams. Remove from fire when it turns brown, around 5–8 minutes. Scrape into a large bowl and let it cool completely.
  2. In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together.
  3. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar to browned butter. Whisk for about 5 mins until it is light in colour and well combined.
  4. Add flour mixture into butter mixture. Stir until just combined & avoid overmixing. Stir in Cocova dark chocolate buttons.
  5. Scoop dough into balls with an ice cream scoop, place them on a tray at least 3cm apart and cover with clingwrap. Let them chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour. If time allows, chill for 24-48 hours before baking.
  6. Let dough come to room temperature before baking. Preheat oven to 180°C with fan & bake for 10 mins. Let them cool for 30 mins before serving.
