Horrifically bad for you but insanely good chocolate chip cookies | DIY

Hi chummies,

I've been baking and I NEED to share this recipe with y'all as it would just be rude not to. These cookies are massively chocolatey so it's probably not wise to eat them all the time but we all deserve a little treat every now and again... right??!  

I got the inspiration for these cookies from Tanya Burrs blog www.tanyaburr.co.uk and they looked really good but there were elements of the recipe that I wasn't feeling so I just changed it up very slightly. The same general idea though - CHOCOLATE!  

So go clean your hands, tie on your apron, set the oven to preheat at 200 degrees and here we go...  

What you'll need:  

  • 300g self raising flour
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 200g butter
  • A little milk (only if your mixture needs it - you be the judge)
  • An egg
  • Chocolate - I've chosen: Milky Bar, Daim Bar, & Dairy Milk... NOMfest!  

Let's do it: 

Mix the butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Keep mixing until it's all combined and smooth. Crack in the egg and whisk it all up. It's time for the flour so throw it in and get mixing again. Now for the good bit... Break up all of the chocolate and pop it in to the bowl with your other ingredients. Combine all of the ingredients and once you've done that you're good to go. Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper or tin foil. Separate the mixture into cookie sized pieces (large portions are always preferable when it comes to cookies... just sayin') and line them up on the trays. 

Bake the cookies for about 10 - 15 minutes, everyones oven is different so this may vary just be sure to keep and eye on them. Once they are out of the oven they will look a little bit like a jelly-ish, gooey mess. Just leave them to sit for about 30 minutes and that will sort itself out. Throw on your favorite onesie or pair of pajamas, put on the kettle, and light the fire while you wait. 

After the 30 minutes are up you should have a cup of tea in one hand and an insanely perfect cookie in the other while you sit in front of the fire... ENJOY.
