Blunt’s Weekend Kitchen: Chocolate Cookies

Over a year ago I shared my chocolate chip cookie recipe with you. I still claim that these are the worlds best cookies but when my sister came home from school and said that she need to make something to take into school and she wanted it to be chocolatey I knew the recipe that I wanted to share with her.

These are taken from Tanya Burr’s blog and I am so glad that I decided to try a new cookie recipe. They are sweeter, less salty and wonderful for teenage girls.

To make these absolute monsters you will need:

FYI: we made two batches so we doubled the quantities that are below. The ingredients below make around 10 cookies and we got just over 20 by doubling everything.

200g butter
300g caster sugar
1 large egg
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
A little dash of milk 
A large bar of white, milk and dark chocolate
3 Daim bars 


1. Start by switching your oven on to 200*c. You will need to put an apron on whilst cooking these cookies (especially if cooking double the amount) as I guarantee that you will get very messy.

2. Mix your sugar and butter together in a BIG bowl until it is smooth and creamy. Before you do this make sure your butter is at room temperature as you won’t get the creamier texture otherwise.

3. Crack in your egg.

4. Then add your flour and cocoa powder and mix until it looks all chocolatey and delicious. You may need to add in a splash of milk (we added quite a lot of milk) as the end texture is meant to be sticky and not dried out by the dry ingredients.

5. Break all of your chocolate into small pieces (but not too small) and fold them into the mixture. There is A LOT of chocolate but that is part of the magic of these cookies.

6. Next line your baking trays with baking powder and blob on your cookie mixture.

 7. Put them into the oven for 11 minutes. They will come out looking ultra gooey but go with it. You must, I repeat MUST leave them to cool on a rack for 30 minutes at least, we left ours for 2 hours. There is a lot of chocolate in this recipe and it needs the chance to cool and set before you try to eat them or it will break into a million pieces/burn your mouth.

8. Sit back, enjoy and put some into a tin to take to school, work, or when going to meet friends.
