The Best Chocolate Cookie Recipe... Ever. | 30 Days of June


You know how everyone thinks they have the key to the best cookie recipe?

Well, they're wrong.

So undeniably wrong.

But that's okay, because I have the key to the best damn cookies you will ever eat in this lifetime and I'll even let you in on the secret- for free.

The secret to the greatest cookie ever is all in the baking time. 
I find that around 10-12 minutes is all these babies need to give you that gooey, soft goodness that will leave you begging for more. 

Forget about milkshakes bringing all the boys to the yard, these cookies will have them banging down your door!

The first time I ever made these, I took them out around the 11 minute mark and thought to myself, 'Ain't no way in hell are these biscuits cooked!' Alas, I was proved wrong 30 minutes later when my kitchen smelled of chocolate and my countertops were covered in the most appetising cookies I have ever seen in my life. Just like when you want to cook a nice juicy steak, where you cook it for less time and let the meat 'rest', it is the same way with these cookies.


The Best Chocolate Cookie Recipe
Makes 10-12 Large cookies

You will need:

200g softened, unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups of Castor Sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cup Self-Raising Flour
3/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 block of white chocolate (I used Milky Way)
1 block of milk chocolate (I used Cadbury's Caramello)

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees celsius. 
2. Cream together the castor sugar and softened butter
3. Crack in an egg and mix until well combined.
4. Carefully fold the flour into your mix, making sure it's well combined. I find it easiest to use my hands once the texture starts to crumble- so much easier!
5. Add in your cocoa powder until your mixture turns a chocolate colour.
6. Now for the fun part- the mix ins! Add anything you like- go crazy!
7. Roll into balls and place on trays lined with baking paper. Pop them into the oven for 10-12 minutes.
8. Once out of the oven, let them cool for 30 minutes. This is the hardest part!
9. Enjoy them! I take mine with a cold glass of milk, a la Santa!

I love this recipe so much! It's simple and quick and so easy to whip up if you've got unexpected guests around too!
