These little bites of heaven are Alex’s favourite and I have to admit, I’m pretty fond of them too!
Although let’s be real here, there’s nothing to hate about these sneaky treats. Moist chewy cookies? Good. Gooey, rich kinder surprise centre? Good. Having a whole tray of them at your disposal? Good!
This is one of my ‘healthy for the soul’ recipes. There’s not a lot of nutrition bursting out of these cookies, but boy will they make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Sometimes you just need a cookie or two to enjoy with a big glass of milk or cup of tea. And why waste your indulgence on packaged cookies, when you can have these ready in 20 minutes?
There’s nothing better than homemade cookies. You can even watch Netflix while you make them! Watching Friday Night Lights while making the most delicious cookies ever? Sounds like a perfect day to me!
Kinder Surprise Cookies
Makes 16 cookies
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup caster sugar
125g butter, softened
1 ½ cups plain flour
½ teaspoon bi-carb soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
½ cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup broken up kinder Bueno chocolate (200g packet)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Line two trays with baking paper and put to one side.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sugars and the butter until well combined.
Beat in the egg until nice and creamy.
Sift the flour, bi-carb soda and salt into the bowl. Mix together with a wooden spoon.
Add the chocolate chips and kinder bueno chocolate and give the mixture one last stir.
Roll the batter into small balls and place on prepared baking trays. They will expand so there’s no need to press them down.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Take the trays out and let the cookies set for 5 minutes until transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container… If there are any leftovers!
Handy wee tip: The cookies won’t look or even feel ready by the end of the 10-15 minutes; that’s okay! They’ll continue to set and firm up after you take them out of the oven. Don’t bake them for any longer unless you want crispy cookies instead of chewy cookies.
