White Chocolate Chips Chocolate Cookies

These crunchy chocolate cookies studded with white chocolate chips is the reverse of many chocolate chips cookies.
This recipe makes 4 dozen. So I freeze half of the dough in the plastic container and scoop out spoonfuls of dough to bake whenever we have a hankering for freshly baked cookies.

2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Hersley Brand)
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
250g salted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup castor sugar
2 eggs
100g white chocolate chips (you can add more if you like)

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at the time, mixing well after each addition.
Sift in the dry ingredients and mix until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate the dough until firm, about 1-2 hours.
Preheat the oven at 165 deg C. Place a baking paper on the baking sheet or grease the tray with butter. Use a teaspoon to scoop the dough and shape into a round ball. Place the round dough 2 inches apart from each other on the baking sheet and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the edges turn crispy.
Let the cookies sit on the baking sheets for a few minutes before lifting them off and cool completely on a wire rack. Store these cookies (cooled) in an airtight container, can keep for 4 to 5 days.
