    Makes: 50 cookies, if you make them small

    • 350g (12 oz) plain flour
    • 175g (6 oz) caster sugar
    • 175g (6 oz) soft brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 225g (8 oz) butter
    • 2 free range eggs or 150g condensed milk
    • 350g (12 oz) chocolate pieces
    • 70g (2.5 oz) chopped nuts e.g hazelnut, peanut (optional)
    • 4 tablespoons (60g) cocoa powder

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:13min  ›  Extra time:7min cooling  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Pre-heat oven to 200 C / Gas 6 / 180 C fan and line a baking tray. Place all dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
    2. Cream butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth with no lumps of butter left.
    3. Stir in eggs one at a time until incorporated. If using condensed milk add at this stage.
    4. Sift in 1/2 of the flour/cocoa mix and stir well. Gradually add the choc pieces and nuts as well as rest of dry ingredients. Stir until it makes a stickyish dough.
    5. Scoop out a teaspoon at a time. Roll dough in to ping pong sized balls and squish a little flat. Maybe bake one test before doing a whole tray.
    6. Bake for 8-15 minutes depending on the quality of your oven, mine is rubbish so everything takes a bit longer. Check cookies after 8 minutes. The trick is to take them out slightly before they are done if you want a gooey middle. The outter shell will harden once cooled. Enjoy!
