These are truly blow the diet, straight up delectable. Chock-full (see what I did there?) of dark and white chocolate chips, cocoa powder and sugar.

If you’d prefer you can make tiddly little ones using teaspoons of cookie dough rather than dessertspoonfuls. That way, you’re only having a little morsel at a time. Me? I prefer my cookies soft, chewy and the size of frisbees!

Justin tends to prefer savoury snacks to sweet ones, but even he’s contributing to the rapid disappearance of this particular batch.

  11. Allow to cool on a wire rack while you make the next batch. Repeat until all the cookie dough has been used (My large baking tray took 3 batches to use up all of the dough)

I had another request for this week’s Cakes & Bakes to be cookies (Justin is SO demanding!) I flipped through the pages of The Great Big Cookie Book by Hilaire Walden and found this recipe for double chocolate cookies. He’s not the biggest fan of chocolate cakes & biscuits but the words ‘beggars’ and ‘choosers’ spring to mind!
