‘Instagram famous’ baker Eloise Head’s remarkably simple chocolate cookies, which she makes with five simple ingredients: eggs, icing sugar, cocoa, salt and chocolate chips
Ms Head makes the cookies by sifting 350 grams of icing sugar with 60 grams of cocoa powder and a half teaspoon of salt, mixing until fully combined.
She adds three egg whites, carefully separated from their yolks, and mixes until smooth.
Next, she folds in 250 grams of chocolate chips before leaving the batter to sit for about 30 minutes.
Ms Head then scoops one tablespoon of the mixture onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, spreading the scoops two to three inches apart.
She bakes the batter for 10 minutes in an oven set to 160 degrees Celsius, then waits for the cookies to cool before transferring to an airtight jar.
