Well hello there lovelies! It’s very nearly Christmas, and I am very excited! For today’s post I am back with another recipe for you all and this is one of my all time favourites. I love doing recipe posts and I think you guys enjoy reading them too, so I hope you enjoy this one!
As Christmas is rapidly approaching I thought I would do a gift idea post which is also a recipe that can be made any time of the year. If you’re a bit of a chocoholic like me then you will probably (most definitely) like this recipe and you can customise it to make it your own too!
Today I’m going to be giving you a recipe for these cookie monster cookies! These cookies are the ones that look shop brought, the ones that make your tummy rumble, and the ones that are gooey in the middle but chewy on the outside. If that doesn’t sound tempting enough for you, take a look at this picture of what it looks like inside.
Looks delicious doesn’t it?
So if you want to make these beautiful cookies that are like pringles (you can’t just have one), then keep reading!
Triple Chocolate Cookies, Makes 12
* 200g unsalted butter
*300g caster sugar
*1 large egg
*275g self-raising flour
*75g cocoa powder
*chocolate (loads of it)
*a splash of milk.
Firstly, put your butter into a bowl and put it in the microwave for a few seconds, so it is easier to work with. Then add in the sugar and mix mix mix. I prefer using a wooden spoon for this but it’s up to you what you choose to mix with.
Now crack in an egg and mix again.
It’s time to add your dry ingredients! Chuck in some self raising flour, cocoa powder and the chocolate broken into bits. Give it a good mix and be prepared for aching arms and hands. If the dough seems too dry, then add in a splash of milk to moisten it.
Now I’m going to turn the oven on to 200 degrees (gas mark 4). And then line two baking trays with baking parchment or grease the trays with butter.
Divide the dough into twelve equal balls and place them on the tray, leaving enough space between each ball because they do spread easily.
Now pop the cookies into the oven for 10 minutes and enjoy eating that cookie dough ‘left overs’. I know you want to… 😉
After they are done in the oven they will come out super sloppy, but give them 10-40 minutes to cool and they will harden up (if you can resist of course).
Now it’s time for eating. Eat with a glass of milk whilst snuggled up watching a movie. I reccomend watching a movie/programme related to food because then you can feel that same feeling that the people on TV do when eating.
And that’s it! That is all you need to do to create these gorgeous cookies. Let me know if you try them out and how they taste!
This was actually a collaboration post with the beautiful Lyndsy who writes the blog http://littleirishbeautybox.wordpress.com/ . We both did recipe posts ready for Christmas and I realy enjoyed writing with her! She deserves so many more followers, so do check her out and read her recipe too! 🙂
