Gooey Double Chocolate Cookies

21 September 2014


If you live in the UK you'll probably be quite aware of, or even have participated in the Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Mornings. Every year they pick a date and people all over the country bring tea, coffee and delicious baked goods all in the name of raising money for charity. I love the event because it's so simple, taking something that many people do every week - having coffee with friends - and putting it to a good cause. Unfortunately, I struggle to make the actual coffee morning because it usually clashes with my work schedule so when I saw that Food Nerd was inviting bloggers to join her in a virtual bake sale I was so excited to be able to to join in.

I'm donating this recipe for gooey chocolate cookies. They're deliciously soft, chewy and packed full of chocolate. They're also really quick and easy to make so perfect if you need a recipe for taking a long to a local bake sale or coffee morning of your own.

If you'd like to show your support for Macmillan and the virtual bake sale, here are the instructions:

1) Choose a recipe (it can be anything you like, it doesn't have to be a sweet recipe) and upload it to your blog, mentioning the bake sale.
3) Visit FoodNerds blog page so you can add your recipe to the linkup and everyone else can see what you've shared.
2) Head to the justgiving page and donate the cost of your ingredients to Macmillan.

If you aren't into cooking, you can still go to the page and donate or click here to find a coffee morning near to you on September 26th or details on how to host your own.


Ingredients
250g plain flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
175g butter
1/2 tsp baking powder
100g plain chocolate
100g white chocolate
1 egg
1 egg yolk
200g brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract


Start by creaming together the butter and sugar and then beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until  creamy and well combined. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Chop the chocolate into small chunks and stir into your mixture.

Roll into small balls (it should make about 14) and lightly press onto a lined baking tray then bake at 170c for 12-14 minutes. They should still be quite soft so leave them to cool down on the paper for a few minutes before moving to a wire cooling rack.

  1. These sound perfect! Believe it or not I've never actually made choc chip cookies (which is a bit ridiculous really!). The virtual bake off is such a great idea too :) x

    Whaaat? Ohh they're so good made from scratch - and so much cheaper if you're like me and can eat a whole bag of the big supermarket ones to yourself :') They're really easy too, you just have to remember to take them out early enough because they harden a lot as they cool :)
    I know isn't it fab? I got so excited when I saw the post about it. Hoping a lot of others will join in too because it's such a good cause and so easy to do. x
