Chocolate Cookies



I read on Twitter that it was National Baking Week this week which gave me the perfect excuse to bake more for my blog - today it's chocolate cookies!



Recipe:

4 oz (125g) unsalted butter at room temperature
3 oz (90g) caster sugar
3 oz (90g) soft light brown sugar
1 egg
2-3 drops of vanilla extract
4 oz (125g)  chocolate spread
7 oz (200g) plain flour
1 oz (30g) cocoa powder
1 pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
Chocolate of your choice for the chips - I used a bar of galaxy chocolate and half a bar of milky bar (I used the other half for the drizzle)












1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4 (180 degrees)

2. Cream together the butter and both types of sugar

3. Add the egg, vanilla extract and chocolate spread and beat until smooth

4. Measure out the dry ingredients and sieve them into your mixture

5. Mix together and then stir in the chocolate pieces

6. Place heaped spoonfuls of the dough onto your baking trays - you'll probably get around 6 onto each tray if you leave room for them to spread

7. Bake for 14 minutes and then leave to set for 2 minutes before moving to a cooling rack



Optional:
8. Melt half a bar of white chocolate in a bowl and use a fork to drizzle it over the cookies



Voila!



I've made these so many times before - and they're usually all gone in about a day in our house!



Hope you liked the post!
