01/04 - Cookie Monster!

How many of you currently have a stash of chocolate taking up your kitchen surfaces that you're not sure what to do with? Okay so chances are you'll eat it but why just eat it when you can make a it a whole lot more interesting? 

These are seriously the best cookies ever but the most annoying part of making them for me is 'chipping' the chocolate. It has to be cadburys and I'm not sure how often you've tried to chop up a bar but it's not so easy and throwing it around the kitchen just doesn't cut it - literally. Easter Eggs make the perfect chocolate chips as they crumble so easily and give just the right amount of chocolate per chip.. I may be a little picky. These cookies are also super simple to make, you stir up all the ingredients and dollop a tablespoon of mixture on the baking tray and.. bake. No rolling or cutting, they spread in the oven to the most deliciously soft, gooey yumminess.. I can't even.. just make them!

What you'll need...

125g butter, softened
100g light brown soft sugar
125g caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
225g self-raising flour
½ tsp salt
200g chocolate chips

You can read the full 'how to' here but to be honest you can just throw it all in a bowl, put it on the tray, 8mins in the oven at 180 and you're done!

  1. You make this sound so simple! Last time I attempted making cookies it ended up as one massive one in the tray, D'oh! Always keen to try out different recipes so will definitely be giving this one a go :)
