Green & Black's: Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

green and black's chocolate cookie recipeA few million decades ago (the year before last), I received a gift from a friend of a cookery book.  Though, it wasn't just any cookery book, it was a chocolate-focussed book packed with delicious recipes by Green & Black's.  I'm disappointed to say it's taken me this long to select a recipe to try, though that's not to say I haven't been caught flipping through the book's tasty imagery on various occasions before now!  After much deliberation, I took inspiration from the 'Truly Gooey Chocolate Cookies' recipe found on page 20 and explored Green & Black's website for a similar recipe that incorporated milk chocolate.  One quick shopping trip later to pick up an ingredient (you're always missing one, right?) and I was set to attempt the Chewy Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe...

Now, I've tried more than my fair share of cookies over the years and so as a self-proclaimed chocoholic, I had high hopes for this recipe.  I'll cut to the chase, I was hugely impressed!  The batch whipped up eighteen delicious cookies, each one boasting the gooey result of 300g Green & Black's Milk Cooking Chocolate.  I could have made the chunks of chocolate smaller, though there seemed little fun in that and so instead, I broke each branded piece into simple halves for optimum impact and ultimate ooze.  Fifteen minutes of preparation followed by ten speedy minutes in the oven and voila!  Cookies!  Mmm.

A full recipe and preparation guide can be found under the Recipe tab over on the Green & Black's website, however below is a full list of ingredients to give you an idea of what comprises these indulgent treats:

*

300g Green and Black's Milk Cooking Chocolate

50g Green & Black's Cocoa Powder

200g Plain Flour

175g Melted Butter

200g Light Muscovado Sugar

100g Golden Caster Sugar

1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

A pinch of salt

1 Medium Egg + 1 Egg Yolk

*

With love,

  11. Oh yummy!! I love chocolate! And I think I have transferred that love to my son who this morning came smiling around the corner when he had found the chocolate (or 'hotalate as he says) me and my husband forgot on the sofa last night. "I have had 'hotalate mom!!" he said with a big grin on his face. :-)

  24. First off, sorry it took me a few million decades (a few weeks, to be exact lol) to navigate to your blog and enjoy reading and catching up with your posts, hon :)
    Also, what a delicious post this is! I will definitely be "stealing" this recipe as I have been thinking I need to start baking more often. Hubby has just recently also reminded me how I have all these wonderful cook books which never get used. Spring is a perfect excuse to blow the dust off the cook books and try new things :)
    So thank you for sharing this delicious recipe, Gabrielle! I will make sure to tag you whenever I make these and share them on social media ;)

  42. Can't even describe how much of a cookie monster I am, so obviously these look amazing to me! Definitely wouldn't be able to restrain myself though, I usually have to keep myself to about two cookies at a time...if I had the whole batch in front of me I could definitely see myself devouring it.
