Tanya Burr Triple Chocolate Cookies


Hello Everyone! How are you? On Friday, as a celebration to the weekend I decided to schedule some early morning baking! I’ve attempted to make Tanya’s cookies twice before, and both times something went wrong – First the batter had too much milk and the cookies ended up the size and shape of the cooking tray – whoops. The second time I used the same batter but the next day. Somehow the batter changed overnight. It was dense and I instantly knew before cooking them they weren’t going to be as moist – and I was right. So third time lucky, they turned out perfect!! Moist but baked thoroughly with lots of melted chocolate bits – these are the best cookies in the world. They’re pretty famous in the blogging world, have you tried eating / making them? Here is Tan’s recipe. I can only advise you to follow the recipe word for word, down to the last dust of flour… And don’t be generous with that dash of milk – like in so many cases, less is more here! Enjoy 😉 x

To make 10 (rather large) cookies you will need: 

200g butter
300g caster sugar 
1 large egg
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
a little dash of milk – tiny, tiny, tiny.  
a large bar of milk chocolate (I chose Cadburys Oreo)
a large bar of white chocolate
a large bar of dark chocolate (I thought this was a bit too much – So I added another bar of Cadburys Oreo and Daim mix! Because no that wasn’t too much)
Pop your oven on to 200 degrees celsius 
Cream together your butter and sugar 
Crack in your egg
Stir in all the dry ingredients
Add a dash of milk if your mixture IF it’s looking dry
Break up all of your chocolate and throw it in, using your hands to get it into the dough
Line 2 trays with baking paper (the cookies will spread in the oven so don’t place them close together)
Pick up a 10 small handfuls of cookie dough and place them onto your trays
Pop them into the oven for 11 minutes – I have found this to be the perfect baking time. When you get them out they will not look cooked, it is vital you know this, as it will be very tempting to leave them in for longer and then they’ll be hard and overcooked once they are cool. Just take your cookies out after 11 minutes and leave them to cool for about 30 minutes.
