Method Prep:30min › Cook:1hr › Ready in:1hr30min
Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
Cream butter, dark brown soft sugar and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla and eggs. Stir in the flour.
Split dough into 2 lots.
Version 1: Add in plain chocolate chips. Mix well.
Version 2: Add in cocoa and 'energy mix'. Mix well.
Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls and place onto a greased baking tray. Using a fork, flatten the cookies, leaving approximately 1cm between each flattened cookie as it does spread a little. Note that the thinner you press it the crispier it'll be and the shorter the baking time.
Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes or until baked. Leave on tray to cool for about 2 to 3 minutes before removing and putting onto cooling racks to cool completely.
