Tis the season to indulge, fa la la la la, la la la la. 
My favourite season is upon us (finally) and although I enjoy baking all year round, I get most of my inspiration around the colder months, when I’m craving warm fluffy brownies with thick creamy hot chocolates or in this case, gooey chocolate chunk cookies with a glass of milk (cue all the ooohs and the ahhhs).

These are exceptionally easy to make and actually taste like the real deal. Not like those hard, almost-broke-a-tooth type cookies your Mum helped you make as a child. These are melt in your mouth, all-my-dreams-have-come-true-at-once, type cookies. 

I so wish I could tell you that I made this recipe up myself but that would be a lie. I actually got this from Tanya Burr, whilst I was quickly googling a Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. I saw that her’s only took 11 minutes, so I gave it a try and I’m so glad that I did. 

What You Will Need 

200g butter
300g caster sugar
1 large egg
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
(A dash of milk if you find that you need it) 
1tsp of Vanilla Extract
A large bar of Chocolate (I recommend 1 bar of Milk Chocolate and 1 bar of White Chocolate) 

How To:

Pre heat your oven to 200 degree celsius & line two baking trays with parchment paper.

1. Cream together both the butter and the caster sugar.
2. Crack in the egg. 
3. Add in the vanilla extract
4. Mix in the flour and the cocoa powder.

(At this point, you would add in the milk if you feel that the dough is too dry but I’ve made this recipe a number of times and have never had to use it.)

5. Break up your pieces of chocolate and add them into the dough
6. Using your hands, create small chocolate balls and place them onto the baking paper. Try not to place them close together as they do spread.  

Then they’re ready for the oven. These only take 11 minutes to cook, so make sure you have a timer on your phone. When you take them out, the cookies won’t look cooked and it will be very tempting to leave them in the oven for a little longer. DO NOT DO THAT FRIENDS! They will overcook and turn into those hard cookies your mum used to make when you were younger. (Soz mums but it’s true.) 

Then you can leave on a rack to cool for 30 minutes or so and voila! Get ready for melt in your mouth goodness. Honestly, these are the bomb and everyone that I’ve made them for have said the same thing. 

The perfect treat, any day of the week, in your jammies watching a Christmas film. Yay.
