Gooey Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are soooo Gooey and good. Not a bad word to utter about these! I had a look at several cookie recipes and settled on a combination of a few popular recipes with a favourite family recipe for 'same day biscuits' ... the recipe for which will be coming shortly. 

I am currently working in a prep school whilst I sorting out my career; its quite good fun and the children are rather insightful and amusing. I learnt at breakfast club today that it is their school disco for years 5 & 6 tonight. This threw up copious memories of my own experiences of school discos! The general separation of boys and girls on either side of the room,  until the uniting games of arches and snowball!! Panda pop drinks, crisp and sweets and of course the classic  song choices ... Saturday Night, Macarena, Cotton Eye Joe, Barbie Girl, 5,6,7,8.. , MMMBop, Pretty Fly (for a white guy) and a few spice girls and s club track thrown in for good measure! Whilst waitressing weddings at university I was amazed at how many sophisticated and high class affairs end the night with their DJ throwing out a few school disco classics! 

These gooey bits of goodness are a little present for the girls I have been working with in the nursery of the school. In my opinion they do a remarkable job providing exceptional care for the young children ... a task that should not be under estimated! 

Makes 18 cookies
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
Bake to perfection for 12 minutes

You will need the following:

150g Butter
75g Caster Sugar
75g Soft Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1 Drop of Vanilla Essence
175g Self Raising Flour
1 Pinch of Salt
1Tbsp Milk
200g Dark Chocolate, melted
100g Dark Chocolate Chips


Cream together the butter and sugars till pale and fluffy
Then add the vanilla essence

Add you salt

Stir in your egg
Then pour in the melted chocolate and combine

Sift in the flour 

Add the milk

Followed by the chocolate chips

Lightly grease your baking trays with a bit of butter & using two dessert spoons, dollop your cookie dough onto your trays. Don't put more than 6 per tray.

After 12 minutes remove from the oven and allow to cool
The cookies will still be soft so do not be tempted to mistake them for being under cooked. They will set when cooled

Enjoy ...
