Amazing Double Chocolate Cookies

I always think my own cookies are too sugary... They crumble upon touch and sometimes taste too much like the raw ingredient. What these cookies lack in sugar they make up for in sweetness, and consistency thanks to condensed milk! Don't think about calories, just make them, and enjoy them!

These beauties are from Mary Berry's Baking Bible- a truly excellent book which any baking enthusiast would appreciate this Christmas!!

They look quite like my Three Ingredient Nutella Cookies  but they are so much more superior... In every way! Perfect for a gift, these will please any sweet tooth! What are you waiting for?? Go bake! :)


Makes 2-3 dozen cookies

You will need: 
200g Plain Chocolate (I used 70% cocoa solids but she suggests 39%)
50g Butter
1 can CondensedMilk
225g Self-Raising Flour
1 Packet White Chocolate Buttons

  1. Line 3 baking trays. Break chocolate and melt with butter in a heat-proof bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. 
  2. Stir in condensed milk and allow to cool.
  3. Mix in flour and chocolate buttons.
  4. Chill until firm to handle.
  5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
  6. Place large spoons of mixture, spaced well apart on the trays.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. As always, cookies will look soft, but take them out!!
  8. Place to cool on a wire rack.
  9. Enjoy with a glass of milk or steaming hot tea!
By leaving these out for Santa, I guarantee you'll get a heap of presents under the Christmas tree!

Stay sweet! x
