I'm normally a one trick pony and just make cup cakes but I fancied a change and I'm so glad I did they taste amazing and so easy to make, I used full measuments and there was enough to feed a small army so I think next time I will half it.yummy

This is the 2nd time I've cooked these - first time as the recipe said, but halved and they were good but I thought a little too cake like. So this time I used plain flour instead of self raising, again halved (made 14 cookies) and they were absolutely delicious!

My two teenage daughters made these tonight and they were a bit hit with everyone. So simple and quick to make although the mixture was very stiff, i had to help with that part. Made them without chocolate chips as I didn't have any in but they were still fab. Left to cool slightly and had them as a dessert with squirty cream.

I will be making them Carol, I have to use gluten free flour, I hope they are as good yours when done thanks.

Gorgeous! Best cookies I've ever tasted, when I took them out of the oven I was sure that they were under done but I left them as the instructions say and they do set perfectly so dont be tempted to leave them in longer!

Fantastic recipe, have made these using m&m's, smarties, maltesers and a mixture. Only problem is they don't last long in our house!

I also halved the recipe as i was worried they might not turn out nice! How wrong i was!!! Beautiful, if you can wait and leave them to cool properly, they taste even better. Plus very easy to make. Will definitely make them again.

Delicious! I halved the recipe and ended up with 12 decent sized chunky cookies, the only mistake I made was leaving them in for a couple of minutes longer as they didn't look done enough so they were a bit dry around the edges. Next time I will flatten them a bit before putting in the oven and will take them out after 12 minutes as per the recipe.

These went down well with everyone. I used 100g of chocolate chips which seemed to be just the right amount.

I halved the recipe and still got over 10 cookies! Used choc m&ms and tiny pieces of fudge for real indulgence...went down a treat with our guests!

Whoops!! .. forgot to rate .. Definitely a 5 * recipe - and would award more if I was able to!

The only deviation from the recipe that I made was to use a bar of milk chocolate chopped up into random sized chunks. SERIOUSLY GOOD COOKIES!! .. easily the best cookie recipe I have found and one I will use time and again. The family loved them. Perfect, yummy cookies. All other cookie recipes will be going in the bin!!
Thanks Carol !!

Another great recipe. They disappear very quickly when the family are around.

i'm thinking of making these because they sound delicious but overall, how long do they take to make?
