One of the things to look forward to at Christmas time are the tins of chocolate that we all demolish way before Christmas day, and the cookies, lots of Christmas cookies. So inspired by Tanya Burrs recipe, I thought I'd combine the too and make Quality Street cookies and they turned out absolutely delicious.  

You'll need,
  • A box/tub of Quality Streets (I used a box of cream Quality Streets because they're my favorite)
  • 200g Unsalted butter
  • 300g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Large egg
  • 325g Self-raising flour 

Now, for the recipe prep time, it says it takes 15 minutes, but it took me a lot longer because I kept getting distracted as per usual, but they did only take 12 minutes to bake like the recipe said. 

So first you want to preheat your oven to 180℃ and prepare your baking trays. I put a thin layer of flour on my baking trays because I didn't have an grease proof paper, but I'd recommend you do it with grease proof paper as it makes it easier to clean after. Also, cut up your chocolate into chunks before you get mixing so you can just chuck them in at the end. 

Once you've turned your oven on and prepared your trays, you need to mix together the butter and sugar in a big enough mixing bowl until it's pale and fluffy. Then add the egg and mix it all together. 

After this you need to slowly add the flour to the mix making sure you mix it all in properly as you go along, you should have a doughy mix now. Once all the flour is mixed in, chuck in your chunks of chosen Quality Streets and mix it all together so you don't get a cookie without the chocolate. 

My mixture was still a bit runny after this so I added a bit more flour, it helped a bit but not much. I separated them into balls and placed them on the tray. I'd like to add that they just expanded and turned into a cookie tray instead of individual cookies, so make sure you make them small and far apart. Luckily I managed to get two good ones to photograph for the post and pretend I'm not a complete failure when it comes to baking and cooking. 

Leave to bake for 12 minutes and, once you get them out, leave them to cool so they set. 

Although they did expand, making them a cookie cake, they did taste amazing and it's disappearing really fast. That's always a good sign. I'd like to try the same recipe with the toffee's from Quality Streets, I bet that would taste amazing. 

Let me know how you get on if you decide to try it, I'd love to know if I'm just a failure or if it happens to everyone. It'll make me feel better about myself.
