Milky Way Chocolate Chip Cookies

Alright, first things first. I wasn't going to share my recipe for these bad boys on the blog because 1). I didn't think anyone would want to see them, and 2). I'm a dairy free vegetarian and don't eat chocolate, soo I've actually never eaten these and I can't confirm if they're good or not. But my brothers and their friends and my neighbours however, are all obsessed and that counts for something right? I just felt like sharing them when I haven't tried them was a lil silly and so these images have been sitting in a folder on my laptop for some time now. But anyway, I shared an Easter variation of these Milky Way cookies on Snapchat (JesskaDenise) at the weekend and the ever so lovely Siobhan from 'Dreaming in Sequins' asked me to share on the blog, so here they are. Incredibly simple. This is just a simple recipe I got online last year and I've mixed it up a little to get these as they are. My brother has described them as a cookie meets brownie hybrid because they're like a cookie on the outside but a little softer inside similar to a brownie.

Ingredients.
  • 200g butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 80g Cocoa Powder
  • 250g Sugar
  • 275g Self Raising Flour
  • Chocolate chips (I usually go for white and I eyeball how much I want to add, usually half a bag).
  • Milkyway share size bar.
  • If you're opting for the easter version I made on snapchat, switch out the Milkyway bar for a bag of Mini Eggs.
  • Dark chocolate share bar.
Method.
  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Prepare cookie tray with baking paper.
  3. Put your butter and sugar into a bowl and mix.
  4. Crack in your egg and mix.
  5. Throw in your flour and cocoa powder and mix until all ingredients are combined. The batter won't look like your regular cookie dough batter. It'll be moist and super messy to touch. It sticks everywhere guys.
  6. Sprinkle in your chocolate chips and try and spread them out as evenly as possible.
  7. Start scooping the mixture into little balls and place on tray. I usually get 12-18 cookies depending on how big or small I make the balls.
  8. Adding the milkyway and dark chocolate is all about eyeballing it. I usually break a whole milky way bar up and then chop each square into four and place them into the cookie ball on the tray. I then add the dark chocolate following the same method depending on how chocolatey I want them to be. 
  9. If you're going for the Easter version - add about two mini eggs to each ball and move the dough to cover the egg over. Add dark chocolate bar also.
  10. Set oven timer to 10mins. Depending on how fast your oven cooks, they made need another five minutes. They won't be super crunchy on the outside until they cool down. I make sure they're done by poking them with a knife and making sure it comes out dry.
So there you have it. The first five steps are the ones where you need to pay the most attention. Adding the chocolate chips/bars/mini eggs is all about personal preference. These are definitely a sugar overload. The original recipe actually calls for 300g of sugar but I reduced that because I felt it was too much. These are pretty idiot proof, I mean I'm no domestic goddess but everyone always seems to enjoy these and they take no longer than 30mins to prepare and cook.  If you try them, let me know in the comments or if you have any questions, please tweet me (@JesskaDenise), I think I've simplified this as best as I can :D
