When I was looking through the cupboards the other day I noticed how we still had some chocolate treats left over from Christmas.
The yummy ones always go first and then we are left with the usual ones that we are really keen on. I hate to waste them so I thought I'd use them up in some cookies.
The basic cookie recipe is one that I have always used out of an old Be-Ro book that was given to me from my Nanna.
This is what I did...
Leftover Chocolate Cookies
100g baking spread/butter
75g light brown muscovado sugar
175g plain flour
2tbsp golden syrup
Leftover mini chocolate bars/Easter eggs/Chocolate treats
Pre heat the oven to 180C
1 - Soften the baking spread
2 - Add the sugar ad mix until creamy and light
3 - Add the golden syrup and flour and mix until starting to come together
4 - Add the milk a tablespoon at a time until you get a dough consistency
5 - Add as much or as little chocolate as you wish. I have use 6 mini Mars bars and 6 mini Milky Way bars chopped up
6 - Place some baking paper onto a baking tray and place small balls of the cookie dough on, making sure there is sufficient room to spread. Make sure that the chocolate pieces are covered in the cookie dough, if not the chocolate will spill out!
7 - Bake for 8 - 12 minutes depending on the size of cookies remove immediately from the hot tray and allow to cool
These a delicious cookies and I was pleased to see that they were enjoyed. In fact they were enjoyed so much they were all eaten in the same day I baked them!
I have also found some Quality Street chocolate which need using and I am going to try using them to get some different flavours into the cookies.
They really are a versatile biscuit and you can add whatever chocolate you have to hand. They are also a great way to use up any Easter eggs that will probably be left over after the holidays!
