Baking is one of my favourite things. I wish I had found it sooner, but I’m glad I found it at all.
I’ve been practising my chocolate chip cookies recently, I’ve gotten them to a highly appreciated standard, so decided it was time to try a different recipe, and double-up on the chocolate. Besides, I’ve been needing a cookie fix.
I went hunting and found a recipe on Joy the Baker‘s website. If you’re into baking, just stop reading this and go straight there. Her passion for baking is inspiring.
Lost in translation
The recipe was easy to follow, with only a couple of measurements requiring conversion (imperial/US → metric/UK), but something still went awry. My mixture ended up a little dense…
Plus, the scoop I’d just purchased from Sainsbury’s failed miserably. It should have been a batch of 24, but ended up being a batch of 17 — they looked like small rolls. I was so disappointed, but the mixture smelled so awesome.
All’s well that tastes chocolatey
Out of the oven and my disappointment evaporated. I enjoyed a cup of peppermint tea with a couple of these amazing cookie bombs; it was impossible to only have one! And their size turned out to be a blessing in disguise; I managed to only have two, but the temptation was powerful.
I’ll definitely be baking these again. We’re heading to a barbecue on Saturday, so friday might be bake-night…
