  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 200g unsalted butter, softened
  • 150g granulated sugar
  • 150g light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 350g plain flour
  • 80g cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon red food colouring
  • 150g white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Stir in the red food colouring until the dough is evenly coloured. Fold in the white chocolate chips.

Scoop tablespoon-sized portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set but the centres are still slightly soft.

Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate with a drizzle of white chocolate if you fancy it!
