Valentines Home-made Cookies

Valentines day is around the corner and we don't all have the money to go out to the cinema and go out to dinner, some of us will just had a quiet night in and making some cookies is a cheap activity to do with your friends or loved ones. 

You will need:
  • Tin foil
  • 2 baking trays
  • Mixing bowl
  • Scales
  • Whisk
  • 1 egg
  • Cocoa powder (75g)
  • Caster Sugar (300g)
  • Self raising flour (275g)
  • Unsalted butter (200g)
  • Milky bar chocolate

So, to make them:
  1. Pre-heat the Oven onto 200°c
  2.  Mix together the butter and sugar in the mixing bowl until it becomes like a smooth mixture with no lumps.
  3. Add in the flour, cocoa powder and egg into the bowl after measuring.
  4. Slightly mix the ingredients until you can carry on with the whisk (don't want to be covered in flour!)
  5. After whisking the ingredients, if it looks a bit dry add a splash of milk
  6. Break up the chocolate and add them in the mixing bowl
  7. Time to get messy!, stick your hands in and mix the chocolate into the cookie mixture til they are roughly evenly spread out
  8. Get hand sized balls of the mixture and put them on the tray, pat them down into a heart shape, carry this on until you have used all of the mixture
  9. Put them in the oven for 12-15 minutes, they will still be a bit squishy so leave them on the side for 15 minutes before eating.
It's a lovely thing to do if you're a bit short on the pennies and need something to do on valentines evening with your loved one, then you can snuggle up and eat your cookies with a film. If you are a single lady or single lad, then they would be great to make with your friends with the wine flowing.

What are your plans on Valentines day?
