Ingredients

  • 200g salted butter, softened
  • 400g golden caster sugar
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 360g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g chopped milk chocolate
  • 100g Crunchie bars, roughly chopped, or soft toffees chopped into small chunks
  • Vegetable oil for greasing
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 160°C/140°C fan/ gas 3. Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Slowly beat in the eggs and vanilla bean paste until combined, then sift in the flour and bicarbonate of soda. Using a metal spoon, fold together until smooth.
  2. Stir through the chocolate and toffee chunks, then spread out into a lightly oiled 28cm fluted tart tin with a removable base. Bake for 40 minutes, then turn up the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4 and cook for a further 5 minutes until the edges are set and crisp, and the cookie is lightly golden on top. Cool for 5 minutes in the tin, then carefully remove, put on a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
  3. Melt the chocolate, either in a microwave in short bursts or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Drizzle it all over the cookie, then scatter with a little sea salt if you like. Leave to cool and firm up, then serve.

  1. While this is heaven eaten when it’s still a little warm, the texture is at its very best after a night at room temperature. You could also freeze the dough in the tin and bake from frozen – just add an extra 4-5 minutes to the cooking time.
