A few years ago I tried a chocolate cookie recipe from Tanya Burr’s blog, and I absolutely loved them! I thought I would share the recipe on my blog, but of course full credit goes to Tanya!
What you’ll need:
300g caster sugar
1 large egg
275g self raising flour (or 260g plain flour and add 3 teaspoons of baking powder)
75g cocoa powder
1 large bar of milk chocolate
1 large bar of white chocolate
1 large bar of dark chocolate
Before you start, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 200 degrees and line two baking trays with baking paper. Once you have done this, you can begin measuring out all of the ingredients.
Mix together your butter and sugar until it forms a creamy mixture (you can use a hand whisk if you’re struggling doing it by hand like I did). Once you have creamed these together, you can add in your egg and then stir in the flour and cocoa powder. Break up all of the chocolate into small pieces and add this into the bowl, using your hands to get stuck in and forming the cookie dough.
If you’re wondering what chocolate I used, it was Dairy Milk, Milky Way and Green&Black’s dark chocolate. Of course, the chocolate you use is completely optional and you haven’t got to use all of the chocolate if you feel it is too much. I love chocolate, so the more the merrier for me!
Once you have formed the dough, break this up into small pieces and use your hands to form a ball shape. Place these onto your baking trays and pop them into the oven for 11 minutes. According to Tanya’s recipe, 11 minutes is the perfect amount of time and I completely agree! When you take them out they may look like they are not completely baked, however once you leave them to cool they will become a delicious, melted chocolate cookie that breaks apart so easily. Definitely how I like my cookies to be!
And that’s it, super easy recipe for such delicious cookies and they take no time at all to prep and bake! Me and my friend Rosie also have a YouTube video on this that will be uploaded very soon, so you can check that out if you want to! Although, it was more of a random, chatty video as opposed to a proper “how to bake cookies” video. But still, please go and check it out if you can!
