A recipe from the delicious. archive; we’re not quite sure why these giant chocolate cookies are dangling from a stick but we are very sure that the actual cookies taste very good.

For something similar (but not on a stick) try our giant chocolate and toffee cookie.

Ingredients

  • 175g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • Finely grated zest of 1 large orange
  • 2 large free-range egg yolks
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 50g plain chocolate, chopped
  • 50g white chocolate, chopped
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp milk, for brushing

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan170°C/gas 5. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric whisk until creamy.
  2. Stir in the orange zest, egg yolks, almonds, plain and white chocolate and flour. Mix well, then shape into 12 equal-sized balls.
  3. Place on a non-stick baking tray, spaced well apart, then flatten each ball. Brush with milk and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, then using a chopstick or the handle of a wooden spoon, make a hole in the centre of each. Return to the oven for 5-8 minutes, until set and golden.
  4. Leave to firm up for 5 minutes then put on a wire rack and cool completely. Pack into a box or wrap in foil to take to a party.
