Leftover Easter Chocolate Cookies – Nothing Better Than Homemade Cookies!

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetHello Everyone,

So you’ve still got all this chocolate left over from Easter…debatable BUT if you do, and you can’t quite eat anymore, why not bang that choc into a dozen odd buttery homemade cookies? 

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 presetWe had quite a lot of Kinder Mini Eggs and Smartie Mini Eggs left over, and I quite fancied a mash up of the two in some cookies. The best thing about making cookies is that you can find all the ingredients in your cupboard/fridge and they’re pretty bloody quick and easy to make.

For these you’ll need;

  • Any type of chocolate you have/want
  • 175g butter at room temp (I use Stalk butter)
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 275g self-raising flour
  • tsp of vanilla extract

(Makes 12/13 big beautiful cookies)

Bang the butter and sugar together until nice and creamy, then add the egg and vanilla, mix until a nice smooth consistency. Once that’s done, add the flour, no need to sift (unless you have extremely clumpy flour…) you should be left with a wettish sticky dough. Then add the chocolate, add however much you like.

Line however many baking trays you desire with parchment paper and dollop on the dough. I used a ice-cream scoop to get an even(ish) amount of mix for each cookie. I got 12 out of this, but bare in mind they stretch out as they bake, so I got 4 cookies on a standard rectangle baking tray (30cmx21cm).

Pop them in the oven (200°C fan oven/180°C non-fan) for about 10 minutes, you’ll see the edges will be golden but will still be really wobbly when they come out, but don’t fret, they’ll harden as they cool. I left mine for 20 mins, albeit through pain and hunger, but the longer you wait, the better they’ll be!

Buon Appetito! Hope you enjoy these as much as I do! Now I’m starving for one. Better pop the kettle on!

Lots of love,
