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.
