{GUEST POST} Double Chocolate Chip Cookies from Laura on The Velvet Doe

19 August 2013

Hi gorgeous Bright and Illustrious readers! I'm Laura from The Velvet Doe and the lovely Claire has asked me to do a guest post while she and her hubby are heading off to Sweden for a wedding (lucky!).

Just like Claire, I adore baking, I would do it all day if I could!  I thought I would share one my most simple but all-time favourite recipes with you - Double Choc Chip Cookies.  Now I know most people have their own favourite choc chip recipe but trust me, you are going to want these! My sister, who is a choc chip cookie connoisseur, calls these her favourite cookies of all time, other friends salivate at the thought!  I'm chomping on one writing this post... :)

I hope you enjoy!

Here's the recipe:

Double Choc Chip cookies
Makes approx 30 large cookies


250g butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla essence
3 cups self-raising flour
1 x 250g bag of milk chocolate chips (I use Cadbury)
1 x 250g bag of dark chocolate melts (I use Cadbury)*

*alternatively, just use a slab of dark chocolate broken into small pieces


Preheat oven to 160 DegoC.
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy (I mix in my mixer for about 5 minutes).
Whisk in the egg and vanilla.
Stir in the flour, then fold through the chocolate chips and melts (or dark chocolate chunks).
Place tablespoon sized balls on greased baking trays.  Bake in oven for 10 - 15 minutes or until cookied/lightly golden.
Cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy while warm.


Thank you to Laura for sharing this delcious recipe! I am definitely going to have a go at making these - they sound divine.
