Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 12-15
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 100g of butter
  • 1 tbsp of golden syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g of self raising flour
  • 175-200g Mixed chocolate (I used dark and white), chopped.
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C(160°C fan). Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Soften the butter using your mixer, beating it until it’s well creamed.
  3. Cream together the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy (this can take several minutes).
  4. Mix in the golden syrup and the vanilla.
  5. Mix in half of the flour with the chocolate. Once this has combined mix in the rest of the flour.
  6. Keep on mixing until it starts to combine. Eventually I had to use my hands to form it into a proper dough.
  7. Separate the dough out into sizable balls. Don’t press them down. This should make 12-15 individual cookies.
  8. Place in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the tray for a few minutes, before transferring to a wire rack.
