3. Sift flour, cocoa & pinch of salt into mixture ( u might wan to sift into a bowl first, then sift again into batter). Add in chopped chocolate or choco chips into mixture and stir till thoroughly combined.

4. Dip a kitchen towel ( the serviette type) into some butter/ margerine. Rub the butter into the baking sheet or al. foil. Scoop about 2 tsp of dough into hand and roll it. Flatten on tray. ( i prefer just scoopin it then dump it on to the tray for a random effect)

5. Space them just enough. The cookies will expand. ( i cannot stress that enough 0_o)

6. Bake for 15 to 20 mins or until brown. Cool on the tray for 5 min before using a palette knife or spatula, transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Serve.
