If you like your cookies so soft they need two hands supporting them from drooping under their own weight, then this recipe is for you. A perfected, classic cookie dough loaded with chewy, gooey, chocolatey bites in the form of Mars Mix. Movie night snacks are about to get waaaay better.
Mars Mix Cookies
- 350g plain flour
- 170g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 225g unsalted butter
- Big pinch of salt
- 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 bag of Mars Mix
- 2 handfuls of chocolate covered raisins
First, preheat the oven to 170, then begin by halving your Mars Mix (very therapeutic)
Whisk together the butter, sugar, salt, bicarb & vanilla until creamy. Beat in the eggs. Next, gradually add in the flour; the mixture will soon turn from runny to a thick, sticky dough. Finally, stir through your Mars Mix and chocolate raisins.
From here you have two choices. If you want perfectly even cookies you can roll the mixture up into a cylinder in cling film and put in the fridge, cutting into discs once chilled. Or, if you’re impatient like me, you can place straight onto a greased baking tray and into the oven for 10 minutes.
*Tip* This recipe makes big, wide cookies. Give them loads of room to bake! Otherwise they get a little friendly and start to mingle…
Leave them to cool for as long as you can resist, then dive in with a big glass of milk!
And there you have it. Super easy, super gooey cookies.
