On campus, tucked away in a corner of the SUB, there is a little cafe/bakery known to most students as the best spot to grab the cheapest coffee, and the most delicious cookies. The shop is called Blue Chip, and is run by the AMS student society. The coffee is fair trade and organic, and the treats they offer include everything from pastries, to brownies, to cookies, to vegan goodies. My favourite cookie they serve, the Marbelous, is a dark chocolate cookie topped with white chocolate chunks. I have always called it the “Marbelicious” because I read the sign wrong the first time-woops.
Because I love this cookie so much, I decided to try and replicate it in my own kitchen. I have no idea what the real recipe is, but these are very good and close in taste to the original! A super thick and chewy cookie base, covered in white chocolate chunks-it is a treat for the taste buds! I will definitely be making these more often because they are just so easy to make! No chilling of the dough required, though I would like to try it to see what difference it makes. I adapted the recipe from The Very Best Baking.
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cup + 1 tbsp flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 4 oz white chocolate, chopped into small chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 1-2 cookie sheets.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. Set aside.
Beat butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until thoroughly mixed. Slowly add in flour mixture to egg mixture and mix with your own arm strength (the beaters cant take the thick dough very well).
When completely combined, scoop tablespoon sized portions (or bigger if you want larger cookies) of dough onto cookie sheets and top with white chocolate chunks. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how gooey you want them to be. Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve warm.
Happy Baking!!!! xxxo
