Well my 2019 Healthy start was supposed to commence yesterday, but a New years day Party stopped that, then today after operation bare house was finished I realised we had several boxes of chocolates with a couple of no ones favourites left.

So rather than bung them in the bin ( as that is actually classed as food waste !), I decided to be creative and make some ten minute cookies with them. I love making some leftover Christmas chocolate recipes as somehow we always have some left over!

As I am the chief food taster in my house, my plan to remove my muffin top has now been put on hold until tomorrow.

These cookies are really easy and frugal to make and they go soooooo well with any ice cream that you would like banished from the house ! These are lovely, thick and gooey, and the addition of the chopped up chocolates make them gorgeously gorgeous !.

If you have any posh dark chocolates left over, try these with a tbsp. of chilli flakes in the mix, as this will be a pleasant surprise !

You will need….

A handful of left over chocolates/sweets

6 oz plain flour

4oz melted butter

6 oz sugar

1 egg

2 oz cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Put the oven onto a medium heat and line a baking tray with grease proof paper.

In a bowl add the sugar to the melted butter and mix well, then add everything else and mix this so that it all binds together, it may be tough to stir !

Spoon this out onto the baking paper, I made 12 individual dollops, that when cooked were around 5cm wide.

Put these into the oven and cook for around 10 minutes.  When cooked, you can either leave these to cool or serve warm with Ice cream ( which is the mutts nutz !)
