Since finishing university a few months ago, I found myself having A LOT of free time which I just wasn’t used to. Why is it when you have a million and one things to do, all you fancy doing is binge watching TV but when you can actually do it guilt-free you don’t fancy it?
Anyway, I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen in my quest to become the domesticated goddess I feel I am destined to be. One of my favourite things to indulge in are cookies, so here is a really simple recipe for what I have so originally coined as my giant chocolate chunk cookies! The recipe is relatively basic with a few of my own special touches!
What you will need:
360g Dairy Milk chocolate (allow some for snacking)
350g plain flour
175g caster sugar
175g light soft brown sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
A pinch of salt
1. Preheat your oven to 190C/gas mark 5
2. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a bowl
3. In a larger bowl, mix together the butter, caster sugar and brown sugar until creamy and then beat in the eggs
4. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the larger bowl
5. Break up the chocolate and cut each square into quarters, then stir the chocolate into the mixture
6. Line a tray with greased baking paper and dollop on the mixture in around 5cm circles and 2cm thick
7. Bake for around 10 minutes or until golden brown and then leave to cool!
This is an easy throw-everything-in kind of recipe with minimal mess! It should make around 12 cookies, depending on how much self control you have for the ‘licking the bowl’ stage aka eating the mixture throughout the process!
