I have a little obsession with the Marvellous Creations popping candy chocolate that Cadbury’s released a few years ago … so when I came across a cookie recipe that had the chocolate in I knew I had to give it a go. Choc chip cookies are another one of my downfalls, this recipe is really moving to the top of my ultimate soft cookie list.
It’s actually quite surprising that any of the actual chocolate made it into the cookie dough!
50g softened butter
100g muscovado sugar
25g cocoa powder
125g all purpose flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
70g of chopped up Cadbury’s popping candy chocolate.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius .
Beat the butter and sugar together until soft and creamy, add in the egg and beat again until combined.
Add in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa, at this point mix in by hand so you don’t overbeat it.
Finally fold in the chocolate bits. Scoop up a heaped teaspoon of the cookie dough and roll it into a ball between you two hands (my kids did this).
Place the balls on a lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes .
Try not to eat all of them at once, personally I like them a little warm still so the chocolate is gooey.
