Baking on New Year's Day!


On New Year's Day, my cousin and I had a day of Baking! We made; Double Chocolate Cookies, White and Milk Chocolate Cookies, Cake Pops, Brownies and Mars Bar Cake.

Double Chocolate Cookies
200g Butter 
300g Sugar
1 Egg
275g Self Raising Flour
75g Cocoa Powder
200g White Chocolate 
200g Milk Chocolate 
Dash of milk 
~ Can be Triple Chocolate if you add Dark Chocolate too. ~ 

These are absolutely delicious, a few got a bit burnt around the edges but they are so soft and silky to eat. I could literally eat them all day. I feel like this is a basic chocolate cookie recipe and you could add any chocolate and it would still taste incredible. 


We have attempted to make Cake Pops before and they were a disaster. This time i feel like they turned out so much better. They are to die for, my brother absolutely loves these. They are so great for little ones, that don't eat a full piece of cake or cupcakes, as they are bite size. I will definitely be making them again.


White and Milk Cookies
200g Butter
300g Sugar
1 Egg
325g Self Raising Flour
Dash of milk 
200g White Chocolate 
200g Milk Chocolate

I got this recipe from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsUzi4x9m-E
These cookies are beautiful, taste delicious and are melt in the mouth. They are so soft and chewy, they break apart so easy, and are such a hit with the entire family. Will definitely be making these again.
