What to do after we’ve had enough of roses, quality street, lindt and ferrero rocher after Christmas is well and truly over? How about breaking them all up and mixing with cookie dough?
So that’s what I did, making my usual cooke dough of mixed:
– 125g softened butter
– 100g sugar
– 1 egg
– 110g whole meal flour (you can use white if you prefer)
– half a tsp baking powder
– pinch of salt
I then chopped and mixed in the left over chocolates.
I turned the dough out into cling film, rolled into a sausage shape and chilled for 30mins in the freezer before slicing and baking on 200degrees for 8 minutes.
The results were overly melted – my chocolates to cookie dough ratio was clearly off, also too many of the left over chocolates were toffee based so the cookies were quite sticky.
That said, they were very tasty, with each bite a slightly different flavour from the last – a great way to use up the chocolates, with some tweaks.
