THE perfect way to use up leftover Easter chocolate. You can put pretty much anything in there and if you don’t have any holiday specific chocolate treats, just use plain milk chocolate chips.
They would also be very nice if you’d replace the mini eggs with white chocolate mini eggs/ chips and the Nutella with Biscoff Spread…
- 60g Cold, Unsalted Butter
- 60g Light Soft Brown Sugar
- 40g Caster Sugar
- 1 medium Egg
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 160g Plain Flour
- 20g Cornflour
- 3/4 tsp Baking Powder
- Pinch of Salt
- 150g Mini Eggs (or other Easter Chocolate/ Plain Choc Chips)
- 4 tbsp Nutella
In a standmixer or with a handmixer combine cold butter and the two types of sugar until they’re slightly fluffy. Add the vanilla extract. Add the egg and mix well for about a minute, scraping down the bowl in between, until the mixture is well combined.
Combine flour, cornflour, baking powder and salt. Roughly chop the mini eggs or other chocolate treats. Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and start combining the dough. When it starts coming together add the mini eggs and mix them in, only until the cookie dough has come together. It’s important to not overmix cookie dough so the cookies don’t get tough!
Scrape the bowl down, mix for another few seconds. Then place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes – 1 hr.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree C (160 Fan).
Divide the dough into four equally sized balls. Flatten each of them so you have a large, round, flat cookie. Place a tablespoon full of Nutella in the middle. Now carefully thin the dough out and wrap it around the Nutella so it’s completely enclosed in cookie dough. Make sure to not leave any holes that the Nutella can escape through. If you find that your dough is too sticky to work with just leave it in the fridge for another 30 minutes and it will be easier to handle.
Bake the cookies for about 18-19 minutes. The corners should be slightly brown and set while the middle should still be slightly soft.
Let them cool down slightly before eating them all by yourself in one go because it’s lockdown and who gives a shit…
