Cookies are a treat, I know, but my god these ones are incredible! I found this recipe on another blog by Tanya Burr and thought I would give it a whirl and test them out on my work colleagues, thankfully, they went down incredibly well!
I had to share this recipe, as well as keep it close to I can refer back in the future! I have tweaked the original recipe to my own tastes, to find the original recipe here.
This recipe makes 10 rather large cookies, as the chocolate is SO chunky you cant really make them much smaller, but, for me and my friends they are pretty perfect like that! However, you can roughly chop the chocolate if you would like smaller chunks and in turn smaller cookies, or, if you want to make more for your friends and family (or yourself on a Friday night, I’m guilty of this!).
300g Caster Sugar
200g Unsalted Butter
1 Large Egg
350g Self Raising Flour
200g Milk Chocolate
200g White Chocolate
If you would like more chocolatey cookies, as pictured below, pop in 275g of Self Raising flour and then add in 75g of Cocoa Power. If you do this you may need to add some milk to the mixture! I prefer them without the cocoa powder, but it’s completely up to you!
1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius.
2. Cream together your butter butter and sugar.
2. Crack in your egg and mix well.
4. Sieve in your flour and mix well (use your hands if you need to, this can be tricky to incorporate all of the flour so don’t be shy! I use my hands!).
5. Break up your milk and white chocolate and add in the chunks, trust me, it’s amazing!
6. Mix the chunks in with your hands, get yourself messy and smush that chocolate in!
7. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
8. Take handfuls of your mixture, roll roughly into balls and pop them onto your baking trays. Make sure you leave space between them, they do spread out a lot so do not put them too close together!
9. Pop them in the oven for 11 minutes, this baking time is perfect! When they come out they will NOT look done, but trust me, as they cool down they continue to cook gradually so they will be perfect when they are cooled!
10. After about 30 minutes they are cool enough to eat and you will have a delicious, melt in the mouth cookie that is FULL of chocolate. Perfect with a cup of tea!
If you would like more chocolatey cookies, as pictured below, pop in 275g of Self Raising flour rather than 300g,and then add in 75g of Cocoa Power! If you do this you may need to add a dash milk to the mixture! I prefer them without the cocoa powder, but it’s completely up to you!
So there you have it, chocolate cookies that can be made in less that 40 minutes and are honestly the absolute best things I have tasted. They are so delicious that my work colleagues bug me to make them every other week now!
If you end up trying these then please let me know! You won’t regret it 😉
