  3. Cut out the crackers and prick them with a fork.
  4. Bake them on a hot dry frying pan - flip them a few times so they don't burn. They need about 5 minutes on each side. They are light brown when they are done. If they get a bit burned it is ok, it still taste wonderful.

Instructions
  1. Turn on the oven at 170 C.
  2. Melt the chocolate
  3. Mix flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda into a bowl.
  4. Mix sugar and butter together in another bowl. I use a hand-mixer for this because I am lazy. Sir in the melted chocolate.
  5. Mix eggs and vanilla together in a third bowl (yes this is messy). Add the flour-mix and your chips/nuts.
  6. Make 12 balls and sit them on a baking tray (with paper) with a good wide space in between them. Do not press them down.
  7. Bake the cookies for 18 min (use a stick or a fork to test them - they are done when the fork comes out clean)
  8. Let them cool off for a few minutes on the tray before moving them to a wire rack.
