Chocolate Chip Cookies


I love cookies, they are such a yummy treat with a mug of tea. Or as with these particular ones, a glass of cold milk. I made a batch of these last night and not to go too over the top but, they are soooo good! So I had to share the recipe with you.

You will need :
200g room temperature butter
300g caster sugar
1 large egg
275g self raising flour (I used plain, will explain why in a minute)
75g cocoa powder
2 or 3 large bars of chocolate (I used a bar of white and a bar of milk)
a splash of milk

Pre-heat your oven to 220 degrees or 200 for non fan ovens. This batch makes 12 large cookies so line 2 baking trays with grease proof paper. In a bowl cream your butter and sugar together, then add your egg and mix in well. After that pour in your dry ingredients and mix until combined. The mixture is very thick and can seem dry, if it is too dry to come together add a splash of milk. Then break up your chocolate bars and and mix them in - I did this by hand, it was easier that way. Make 12 "handful" sized balls and space them out on your baking trays, I pressed mine down to flatten them, but just a little! Pop them in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, it doesn't seem very long and when you take them out they will seem too soft but they do harden up. Leave them to cool for around 30 minutes and then enjoy. Oh, and the reason I used plain flour is because that is what I always use when making cookies or biscuits, I prefer the end result. I like to keep self raising flour for cakes.


It is such a simple recipe but the result is quite frankly...amazing! I have seen quite a few people make these cookies but the first place I found them was here, from Vivianna Does Make-Up and she found the recipe here from this video. If you are a cookie person I would give these ago...I will definitely be making them again :)

    1. Oh, I just realised I should have maybe said what that is, thanks for pointing that out lol. I used a bar of milk chocolate and a bar of white chocolate and broke them up to mix in. That's all the white stuff is, just melted white chocolate. I was actually really surprised, even after 30 minutes it was STILL melted :) So yummy :)
