100glight brown soft sugar
Tiny pinch of salt
Line a few baking trays with greaaseproof / parchment paper. I use 3 for this recipe as the cookies spread a lot.
Cream together the 150g butter and 100g light brown soft sugar with 100g of caster sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the 1 egg and stir in well.
Sieve in the 200g flour, 40g cocoa powder and pinch of salt and mix into a dough.
Pop in the fridge for 1 hour.
Remove from fridge and take a heaped tablespoon for each cookie. Roll into a ball and stud with the mini eggs.
Preheat the oven to 180°C / 356ºF / gas mark 4.
Bake for 10-12 mins until the cookies are firm to the touch on the edges and still soft in the centre.
Leave to cool slightly before enjoying. A few minutes would do.
Make the dough ahead and leave in the fridge until ready.
Freeze until you really fancy a chocolate cookie.
Store in an air tight container for up to 3 days. (If you don't eat them all straight away)
