Hot Chocolate Cookies

Hot Chocolate Cookies

These delightfully soft, chewy and indulgent cookies are any chocolate lovers dream! They are wonderfully comforting on a cold Autumn/winters night with a glass of milk, especially still warm and fresh out of the oven.

You can find the recipe below that I followed just using half the quantities for a smaller batch of goodies. http://www.averiecooks.com/2015/11/hot-chocolate-cookies.html

I only used dairy milk chocolate instead of the recommended dark chocolate in the centre,which I advise you using as the dairy milk seems to stay solid so you don’t get the lovely ooze of chocolate in the middle.Although the marshmallow did suffice this time thankfully ☺ .

My top tip for this recipe would also be to only bake the cookies for ten minutes instead of fifteen. Adding the chocolate piece & marshmallow middle, half way through cooking time.

You could also make cookie cups using a patty tin and the same principles as before unless you’d like to fill them with milk or something afterwards in which case omitt the center goodness. I topped mine with walls soft scoop vanilla ice cream which made a lovely cute little desert.

I will definitely be making these cookies again and I highly recommend you giving them a go! There much easier than you think to make.The only problem is leaving the cookie dough chilling in the fridge for so long the suspense in unreal! 😂

Cookie and Cream Cake

Cookie and Cream Cake

One of my favourite things in the whole wide culinary world is simply a cold glass of milk and a couple of chocolate chip cookies, preferably right before bed time. It’s a combination I’ve loved for years, since I was a very young child and that’s probably one of the reasons I like it so much! That was the main inspiration behind making this cake anyhow.

Although I am obsessed with cookies in many different forms/varieties such as, Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough ice-cream, millie’s bakery chewy white chocolate cookies, Maryland double chocolate chip cookies and of course oreos that’s just to name a few! You can find the recipe for my soft style chocolate chip cookies here; http://wp.me/p6UAuA-38

As you can see I’m a cookie fiend & if you feel the same way about the rich biscuit too be sure to try out this cake recipe, I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Ingredients:

100g/4oz butter

100g/4oz Caster sugar

100g/4oz self raising flour

2 eggs

50g/2oz melted milk chocolate

2 crushed cookie biscuits

Filling:

100ml freshly whipped sweetened double cream

Decoration: 

50g/2oz melted milk chocolate

3 chocolate chip cookies

Method:

  2.  Add a little flour with each egg and stir until everything’s combined.
  3. Gently mix in melted chocolate and pour mix into a cake tin.

  6. Once baked, remove from oven and leave to cool before removing cake from the tin.
  7. Once removed, slice cake in half and spread/pipe the bottom layer with the whipped cream. Cover the top half with melted chocolate then sandwhich the two halves together.
  8. Decorate the top with a few cookies.
