Chunky Chocolate Cookies

Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked cookies. Whip up a batch of these cookies and you’ll have your friends clamoring for the recipe - which is exactly what I did when my colleague, Kristy, made these divine cookies for a staff morning tea. She generously shared the recipe with me and I can’t wait for you all to try it, too! Happy baking :-)

Chunky Chocolate Cookies

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup oil
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup milk chocolate, cut into small chunks
1/3 cup white chocolate, cut into small chunks
  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  2. Mix sugar, egg and oil with fork.
  3. Add cocoa, flours and chocolate.
  4. Knead lightly with hands to make a soft dough.
  5. Make balls by rolling tablespoons of dough and place on a greased tray, approximately 4cm apart.
  6. Bake for 12 mins. Allow to cool slightly before removing them from the tray - if you can restrain yourself!
Experiment by adding dark chocolate or nuts to add your signature style!

Makes approximately 16 cookies.
