As this is my week back to school and a few of ours too, I wanted to share a back-to-school post which really is a thank you to yourself for surviving through the first week of chaos, business and new changes.
In order to make these super tasty cookies(which I'm eating as I type):
• 160g of unsalted butter
• 125g of soft light brown sugar
• 50g of caster sugar
• 2 medium-sized eggs,beaten
• 175g of malted milk powder ( I'd used Horlicks but Ovaltine or any mother branded malted milk powder will do)
• 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
• A pinch of salt (to bring out all the flavours)
• 150g of chocolate-coated honeycomb balls( I had used Maltesers), rouly crushed(you will need the pieces to stay chunky.
• 50g of good-quality milk chocolate, roughly chopped.
🍪 Firstly,pre heat the oven to 180°C/ fan 160°C/Gas Mark 4.
🍪Line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment or baking paper.
🍪Beat the butter and sugars together until light & fluffy; I preferred using a wooden spoon to beat by hand rather than a handheld/free-standing mixture as it saved me a couple more items to wash up and also, it's more effective as more air gets into the mix which is what you need.
🍪 Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition. Fold in the flour, malted milk powder,bicarbonate of soda and salt to form a sticky but firm cookie dough!
🍪 Mix in the chocolates coated honeycomb ballsand chopped chocolate pieces until well dispersed.
🍪With an ice cream scooper or tablespoon, spoon the mixture on to the baking sheet, ensuring the cookie batter balls are spaced 8cm apart. Wish them luck before transferring into the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
🍪 Allow cookies to set on the baking sheets for at least 5 minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
The cookies can be kept in a airtight container for up to three days. But it doesn't really matter to me as my family will probably finish these in around a day!
