Be a social butterfly...

People are so generous.  But unfortunately, sometimes when people are generous, a ten year old receives a dozen selection boxes/tubs of sweets/chocolates over Christmastime! No I’m not joking!  We have so much, we could open a shop!

So what do you do?

Well Beth and I decided to mush them up and make cookies!

Fancy making some?

You will need:

A selection of chocolates. Three full size or four if you’re using some snack sized ones, as we did.  These are the ones we used.

1/3 cup caster sugar

1/3 cup light =brown sugar 

3/4 plain flour

1 egg

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup porridge oats

1 cup melted butter

Method:

  • Chop your chocolate bars into fairly small pieces.
  • Set the pieces aside.
  • Combine all over ingredients
  • Now you have two choices either add the chocolate bar chunks and mix in using a mixer or stir in gently.  We used a mixer and the chocolate chunks were pretty much blended!  If you stir them in gently you might end up with a less even bake, but the cookies will look more interesting and you’ll have lovely ooey gooey bits!
  • Allow the mixture to chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 190/375/ Gas mark 5
  • Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking tray (I use a silicone one) and squash down.  Leave a little room as the mixture will spread.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for a little while on the tray and then remove to a cooling wire.

These are quite soft cookies and are a yummy way to make use of all that chocolate you’ve been left with after Christmas.

So much for not eating the bars all at once: the cookies are almost gone already!!

Love Rachel
