Left Over Chocolate Cookie Recipe

By Eirian Price Chocolate Chip Cookies

Eirian in our Marketing team decided to make chocolate chip cookies with his daughter the other day. He had loads of bits of chocolate left over from Christmas, stuck in a cupboard so decided to put it all to good use and make these amazing cookies!

Ingredients:

  • 150g of salted butter
  • 80g of light brown muscovado sugar
  • 80g of granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 225g of plain flour
  • ½ tsp of bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • 200g of chocolate

Method:

To make more, simply double the above quantities, that’s what we did as the unwritten rule in the office is that if you’re home baking you have to bring samples in to the office to share with the team. (Please note, in the spirit of keep fit and losing weight, we all walked around the office to work up an appetite – honest!)

So, first things first

1. Preheat the oven to 190C or 170C in a fan over, that’s gas mark 5.

2. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Depending on how big your cookies are, you might need more baking trays

3. Put the butter and sugar into a bowl and beat until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg. Now this is the point where his daughter proudly said that the mixture looked like her Nanny's neck so if yours looks like that, you’re on the right track!

4. IMPORTANT: This is the point all kids (and grownups) like! It’s time to lick the whisks, if you love your children as much as Eirian does, please turn the hand mixer off and then hand the whisk to them.

5. Next, sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture and mix in with a wooden spoon.

6. Grab 200g of whatever chocolate you have, we had some chocolate bars, chocolate sweets, and even a bit of a chocolate Santa. Some was white, dark and milk chocolate, worry not, it all tastes yummy!

7. Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays. WARNING, if you let the kids do this part, you may have some giant cookies! They do spread a lot so be wary!

8. Bake in the oven for 8–10 minutes until they are light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre to the touch. (Don’t burn your fingers)

9. Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack.

10. Pop the kettle on, make a cuppa and enjoy your masterpiece!
