Chip of the old Choc

What is better than a Chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven?  How about two chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven for a balanced diet of one cookie in each hand.

If you have come to see me at a show or demonstration, you would have been able to sample my chocolate chip cookies, as requested here is my recipe.  Enjoy!

125grams of softened unsalted butter

1 cup of caster sugar

1 egg, beaten

½ teaspoon of vanilla

1 ¾ cups of self-rising flour

1 tablespoon of cocoa

150grams of dark chocolate drops


Pre heat your oven on fan bake at 180°C

Line a cookie tray with baking paper

Cream butter and sugar, gradually add egg and vanilla while still creaming

Sift flour and cocoa, then add to the butter mixture and stir

Add chocolate chips and mix until combined

Roll into balls but don’t press down

Bake for 10 minutes or until slightly golden in colour

I love these warm from the oven and sandwiched around ice cream, carbohydrate and protein.  It is all about balance.
