About this recipe:Sweet, chewy, soft and delicious. I have been tweaking this recipe for a year or so and I think I've finally got it right. So if you're after a tasty treat to satisfy a sweet tooth give these a go!
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.
Cream butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth with no lumps of butter left.
Stir in eggs one at a time until incorporated. If using condensed milk add at this stage.
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.
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.
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!
