I am a hoarder in every way. There is no way on earth that I can live minimally because I keep things. The same goes with recipes. I have dog ear recipes magazines, postcards and random torn pieces of paper in between cookbooks, handwritten recipes in notebooks, notes in my iPhone, drafts in blog and countless saved recipes in my Delicious account and iPhone apps and the list goes on. It is getting out of control. How many of these recipes have I actually tried? Most likely less than 5 percent?
And then there are recipes that I stumbled onto that must be made immediate. This Death by Chocolate recipe is one of them. It is extremely naughty and full of chocolatey goodness.
So what does one do if there is any mars bar or snickers at home?
I did have one too many of the mars bar and snickers while slicing them up into nice bite sizes for the cookies. Which do you prefer? Snickers or Mars bar?
You bake them into delicious chocolate cookies. Even the dough looks and tastes seriously good. I could make chocolate cookie dough ice cream with this. Can you imagine how yummy this can be? I had chocolate all over my hands and had no issues in licking them clean!
Recipe taken from Daily Life – Death by Chocolate
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 125g butter, softened
- 160g brown sugar
- 20g corn syrup
- 150g plain flour
- 40g cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon bicarbonate soda
- 100g white chocolate
- 100g dark chocolate
- I mars bar and 1 snicker bar, sliced
- A generous pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 150C.
- Add the eggs and vanilla to a separate bowl and whisk lightly to combine. Beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy
- Add the egg mixture and beat until incorporated. Add the corn syrup and beat briefly to combine before sifting over the dry ingredients. Stir gently to incorporate then add the chunks of chocolate
- Roll tablespoons of the mixture into biscuit shapes and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Gently press a slice of mars bar into the centre of each biscuit and sprinkle over a little salt
- Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool on the tray before consuming en masse
If you do not have corn syrup, replace it with the same amount of sugar. The corn syrup actually makes the cookie more chewy and that is how I like it.
It’s another really simple, easy and quick cookie recipe that is a keeper. I think I might bake some of these and take it to Malaysia with me. Hope that Mister family will love it as much as he did!
