GBBO Bake along-Double Chocolate Chip Cookies



 

Week two of the GBBO brought us Biscuit week, so I made some lovely comforting seriously  chocolaty cookies. I contemplated some lemon jammy dodgers but the lure of white chocolate chips hidden in a huge chocolate cookie was too strong. The moral of story......chocolate always wins!

There were some awesome bakes this weeks....some of those structures were pieces of art....edible art.....which is the best kind of art! I was really happy for Iain, he struggled in the first two challenges but pulled it together for his very cool wild west scene. Luis's George and the Dragon showstopper OMG how amazing was that? Plus he made the flavours match the characters! My current fav is lovely  Richard!! He is so smiley and so talented I was really happy for him when he got star baker!!!

Back to my bake, I really needed a chocolate fix so I decided to make me a big fat chocolate cookie packed with white chocolate chips! These were delicious,quick to make and certainly hit the spot. They were intensely chocolate and then you would get lovely sweets hits from the creamy white chocolate chips. I ate these with a glass milk....they were yummy and comforting.

I used this bbc good food recipe which was great. It makes loads, so we just kept the extra dough in the freezer so we could have easy chocolate fix nearby when we needed it.  Lasted about  4 days which is quite good.......normal people could have probably stored it for longer......but we are chocoholics so we had these 4 nights in row......just one each though we not that crazy.

  2. These do indeed look very chocolatey. I don't think they would last very long near me! I haven't seen the latest bake off episode but no doubt as soon as I catch up I'll be wanting to bake a variety of biscuits!

  3. Wow! These look amazing! Nothing beats a good chocolate chip cookie... except cupcakes of course :-) Your cupcakes also look amazing. You certainly have a knack for decorating them - something I need to work on.

  5. Too right chocolate always wins...... these look amazing! I am surprised you even contemplated putting any dough in the freezer. With cookies this good, I would have just stuffed the lot!
