Double Chocolate Cookies with Smarties!

Before I start this recipe post and take any credit for it, I am going to say that I stole the recipe from Vivianna Does make up and made a few tweaks! So for my version of this recipe you will need:
200g unsalted butter,
300g caster sugar,
1 large egg,
275g self-raising flour,
75g cocoa powder,
One big bar of milk chocolate (around 100g-150g)
2 tubes of smarties
and some milk.

Pre-heat your oven to 200°C. Cube your butter and pop into the microwave if it isn’t soft already and mix in with your sugar until you have a creamy consistency  Once your happy with your mixture, crack the egg and continue mixing. Once you have a smooth pale yellow mixture add in your cocoa powder and your flour. I found that my mixture wasn’t mixing too well so I added milk until I had a thick but manageable mixture.

I added my broken up chocolate and smarties to the mixture, and then lined my two trays with grease proof paper or baking paper. This mixture should make around 12-14 cookies, so take a hand full of the mixture roughly make into a ball shape and flatten and place on the baking tray and bake for around 10 minutes. When you take them out of the oven they will be slightly runny so be careful! Then for the difficult part, leave to cool for around 20-30 minutes as they will stiffen up and enjoy (they’re perfect when they’re warm.) My tip is if they’ve lasted in your house longer than an hour, pop them in a microwave for a few seconds and the cookie will be nice and warm again!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know if you try it out!
