The best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am very sorry for not postin for a long time. We both have been busy even though we are on summer break. We both went away and we are both taking driving lessons now so we are a little occupied with that. But we are getting back on track now and I hope you will enjoy our future posts.

If I may say so, I have a major sweet tooth and can't stay away from cookies, cakes or cupcakes that is one of the reasons why I love to bake. My mother and grandmother are also very into baking so I got to do it from a very young age.
I have made plenty of cookies and cakes and cupcakes and all sorts of stuff so by now I can clearly say that these are the best (and by best I mean the best) chocolate chip cookies I have ever tried and made. And they are quite simple to make so I thought I would share the recipe with all of you.

You will need:
250g dark chocolate
250g brown sugar ( I only used 200g)
120g normal sugar ( I only used 80g because I don't like them to be too sweet.)
150g soft butter
300g flour
2 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

optional: ( I left it out because I do not like peanuts)
125g peanuts
1 tablespoon peanutbutter

1. Preheat the oven to 160°C
2. Roughly chop the peanuts and the chocolate.
3.Mix the soft butter and the peanutbutter for 3 minutes until it is very creamy.
4. Stir in the brown and the white sugar.
5. Mix in the eggs.
6. First mix the salt, the baking soda, the flour and the vanilla sugar. Then stir the mixture in.
7. Add the chocolate and the peanut pieces and gently fold them in.
8. Put small ( please don't underestimate the word small. The cookies become massive in the oven) portions on a piece of parchment paper.
9. Put them in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

If you try these let me know! They are by far the my favourite cookies and I make them whenever I have the possibility to do so.
have a great day!
