Ingredients

  • 115 g butter chopped
  • 300 g dark chocolate melts
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup (240g) caster sugar
  • 2 tbs . cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp . vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp . salt
  • ½ tsp . baking powder
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup unsalted peanuts
  • 1 tub ice cream I used the Peanut Butter Fudge flavour from Harrys Ice Cream Co

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Line 2 flat cookie baking trays with baking paper and set aside.
  • Place the chopped butter and chocolate melts into a microwave safe bowl.
  • Place into the microwave and heat for 3 minutes (or until just melted) on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds with a metal spoon.
  • Place the eggs, caster sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla extract into a large bowl.
  • Beat with handheld beaters or a stand mixer for 3 minutes.
  • Slowly add the melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture beating in between additions.
  • Add the salt, baking powder and sifted plain flour.
  • Mix until just combined.
  • Add the peanuts and fold through with a spatula.
  • At this stage the mixture will be very thin (almost like a cake batter).
  • Place tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared trays.
  • The cookies will spread so make sure you leave a 3-4cm gap between each cookie.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and leave on the baking trays for a further 10 minutes (they will continue to cook).
  • Use a flat spatula to transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • When the cookies have cooled completely, place spoonfuls of ice-cream between two cookies and gently squeeze together.
  • Serve immediately or place into an airtight container in the freezer until required.
