ChocoNut Chip Cookies

This is my go-to cookie recipe.

If people suddenly announce they’re popping round for a cuppa, you can whip these up in a flash & pretend you slogged away in the kitchen for hours.

I made them for a meeting yesterday & they were demolished in seconds.

The perfect combination of crunchy, chewy, & gooey.

Seriously, get this recipe under your belt & you’ll never want a store bought cookie again.

I used milk chocolate & hazelnuts, but you can use any combo you fancy.

To make about 12 big cookies you’ll need:

250g (9oz) plain flour

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

170g (6oz) unsalted butter, melted

200g (7oz) brown soft sugar

100g (3.5oz) caster sugar (granulated sugar)

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 egg + 1 egg yolk

250g (9oz) chocolate of your choice, chopped into small chunks

100g (3.5oz) hazelnuts, chopped

Preheat your oven to 170째C / 340째F In a big, dry bowl, sift your flour, bicarb & salt together. Set to one side.

(Measuring spoons from C&C)

In a separate bowl mix together your sugars & butter.

Next beat in your eggs & vanilla extract, until you’re left with this very attractive looking mixture…

Pour it into your dry mix.

Go to town with the stirring!

You might want to use a food processor, if not you’re going to need some strong arm muscles and a wooden spoon to get to this:

Throw in your roughly chopped chocolate and nuts & knead it all together with your hands, making sure it’s evenly distributed. Line a baking tray with parchment/grease proof paper. Grab a small handful of cookie dough and mould into a ball. Place it on your tray and flatten a little. (You might have to cook them in batches.) Pop your cookies into the oven for about 10-12mins. When they’re done, they should be just starting to bronze on the edges.

Remove from the paper and place to cool on a wire rack.

I really wish you could smell these…

Pile ’em high & serve with a mug of something delicious.

Brilliant additions to any lunchbox or office treat day.
