Make for Mum.

A winner!

I found this recipe in my inbox today and I have to share it. If I received homemade chocolate cookies for mother’s day it would beat an over priced bunch of flowers any day. My kids are 5 and 3 though so maybe if Dad helps they could pull it off. Funnily enough I am making my Mum ‘Spotted Dick’ for mother’s day, hey laugh all you want! I might have to share that recipe too!

  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 100g butter , softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g plain flour
  • 140g milk chocolate , melted
  • 85g white chocolate , chips or chopped into chunks
  • 85g plain chocolate , chips or chopped into chunks
  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line 1-2 baking sheets with baking parchment. Mix the sugars and butter together with a wooden spoon, then add the egg, vanilla, flour and half the melted milk chocolate and mix together. Stir in the white and plain chocolate chips or chunks, then use an ice-cream scoop or round tablespoon (like a measuring spoon) to scoop out balls of cookie dough and drop them straight onto the trays.
  2. Bake in batches for 8-9 mins until pale golden and still soft to touch – they will firm up as they cool. Carefully transfer to a wire rack as soon as they can be lifted up, then drizzle with the remaining melted chocolate.
