Baking | Tanya Burr Triple Chocolate Cookies | prettylittlewriter

Ever since the Youtube and Blog Sensation that is Tanya Burr released her debut book, Love Tanya, I've wanted to bake something from her amazing recipes!
Now I'm finally settled down in Devon with my boyfriend and his family, I thought now would be a great time to try something out.

I chose the Triple Chocolate Cookies as they are quite simple and easy to make, not to mention quick as they only require 11 minutes in the oven!

The ingredients you need are:
275g Self-raising Flour
300g Caster Sugar
200g Butter
75g Cocoa Powder
1 Large Egg
A dash of Milk (If mixture becomes too dry)
And any three kinds of chocolate you'd like to include (I chose Dairy Milk, Galaxy & Milkybar)

The first thing to do is preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Then measure out your butter and sugar and whisk together until a smooth texture (it may help if you microwave the butter so it isn't as hard).

Then you mix in the egg, flour and cocoa powder, adding milk if needed.
You then add in 3 large bars of chocolate, I added one at a time and mixed together so they were evenly spread.

Finally, you then split your mixture into 10 blobs to make 10 cookies. It doesn't seem like a lot, but the cookies spread in the oven and become quite large.

After the 11 minutes in the oven, leave your cookies to cool down for around 30 minutes before attempting to move them, they may crumble. My first attempt is those you can see in the picture above, and they all ended up sticking to each other, so I cut them apart to make them neater.

On a second attempt a day or so later, I baked the cookies without tin foil on the bottom of the baking tray and they came out much nicer and did not stick together.

The final results really were delicious! My boyfriend and one of his friends well and truly devoured them they were that tasty!

If you'd like to try baking these yourself or already have, I would love to see the results! Leave any comments you have below and I will be sure to check them out :)
