Double chocolate cookies

These are a bit of a twist on a biscuit I think- slightly denser and with a more "cake" feel to them. Very easy to make and this makes a good size batch of about 32-36 biscuits.

Begin by putting 50g butter and 200g chocolate in a microwavable dish.

Melt in the microwave for about a minute and the continue for 20 second bursts until two thirds of the chocolate is melted. Then stir it all and leave to stand while the rest melts in the residual heat. Stir again.

Add a 400g can of condensced milk (you can use the light version)- this covers the sweetness so no extra sugar is added but also the liquid and extra fat.

Stir to combine.

Add 225g of self-raising flour.

Stir to comine. It will become quite thick now.

 Add 75g white (or milk) chocolate buttons. Again stir to combine- this is quite a stiff mixture now.

Drop large teaspoonfuls on a baking tray and bake at 160 degrees C (fan- 180 degress C otherwise) for about 12 minutes. They should come out still soft since they harden as they cool.

A very satisfying biscuit that went down a storm with the children and adults that had these yesterday.

The melted chocolate in this makes them really rich and a definite treat.

Til soon....
