Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies

15 Sep

Hello my lovelies, hello cookies!

There is nothing better than a new recipe to entice the palate or new ideas to stimulate a little DIdon’tY or change. There is also nothing worse than running out of ideas, becoming disenchanted!

Never fear lovelies, Love Loulabel has the answer chocolate chip cookies!

This weekend, my over the coffee/tea cup chatter is enhanced with chunky, caramel-tasting cookies that melt in your mouth! This recipe is both gently sweet and so very simple. It is also very versatile, as in you can change it up really easily. You can mix it up, because, let’s face it, everyone appreciates a little spice in life!

This recipe is uber popular with children and super popular with adults just as much.

However, I cannot promise that you will eat only one and thus I simply must recommend that you share these with people you love. Also, if you dislike someone or they dislike you, you will probably be able to manipulate everything to your benefit by serving these!! It’s about simple, easy, and having everything your way! You’re welcome (& I apologise at the same time and should probably write a disclaimer regarding number of cookies consumed in one sitting?!)!  

 

Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 1/2 C plain flour
  • 2 tspns baking powder
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  • 125 g butter
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 2 tblspns condensed milk
  • 125 g chocolate drops/chips/chunks

Turn oven to 180C. 

Beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy (2-3 minutes). Add condensed milk and mix. Sift dry ingredients together, add chocolate chips (to coat in flour mixture) and then add the dry mix to the butter mix. Mix well.

 The mixture will be somewhat crumbly. Cookies can be made small to large as you prefer. Gather together desired amount of dough, squash and then roll into a ball. 

 

Place on lined baking tray, about 1 inch apart. Continue to do this until all the dough is used. Then use a fork to gently press each cookie flat. I use a criss-cross design for sweeter effect.

Place in the centre of the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the cookie, or until golden. If you prefer softer cookies bake until pale, and for crunchier cookies, bake until golden.

Now, to mix it up, you might like to try one of the following:

  • Substitute chocolate chips with smarties.
  • Substitute chocolate chips with huge chocolate chunks. The white, milk, and dark chocolate chunk blend is cookie awesome! 
  • Nuts or raisins and sultanas are a delicious healthier alternative to the  chocolate (though I think a little chocolate chip cookie here and there benefits the soul – disagree if you will).
  • Dark chocolate chunks and 1 teaspoon of your favourite chilli powder is also highly recommended for something a little bit fancy.
  • Roasted, roughly chopped coffee beans make a different and delicious addition.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and mixed spice for a very spice-filled cookie. 
  • These cookies can also be iced with melted chocolate. For added indulgence sprinkle the unset icing with roughly crushed chocolate or crushed nuts.

These charming cookies are a wonderful party treat, make an excellent quick, simple and popular lunchbox addition, and are a wonderful gift for any occasion. 

Bon appetit!
