Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c degrees and arrange baking papers on oven trays.
  2. Chop the chocolate and put in a bowl. Add butter and melt together in the microwave or double boiler until everything is melted and the mixture is uniform.
  3. In a bowl of a mixer with whipping attachment, place eggs, sugar, brown sugar and salt and beat at high speed for 5-6 minutes until you get an airy, fluffy and bright foam.
  4. Lower the mixer speed and add in the melted chocolate mixture. Mix until combined for about a minute.
  5. Add rice flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and mix slowly until you get a thick, chocolatey, shiny mixture.
  6. Using 2 teaspoons or an ice cream scoop, create mounds of the mixture and place them wide apart on the baking paper.
  7. Sprinkle some ground salt over the cookies.
  8. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes or until they are swollen and cracked. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, gently press them down with the bottom of a glass to flatten them a bit (optional).
  9. Cool completely and serve.
