Yet another rainy sunday stuck at home bored. Only one thing left to do and it’s not homework! So I searched my cupboard for ingredients to make an easy heart warming bake and I had this absolute craving for cookies. I had all the ingredients for a classic choc chip cookie except of course I was missing the star ingredient… the choc chips! So I subsituted them for the only other chocolate I could stumble on: Peanut m&m’s! They are scrummy, munchy, chewy, colourful and perfect to share with all your friends.
So to start these scrumptious delights simply get out a large mixing bowl and with a wooden spoon mix together the butter, oil and sugars until well combined. Then add the eggs and salt and stir until fully blended.
Next add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and the m&m’s and get mixing again! And that’s your dough…Place it in the fridge for at least an hour to allow the mixture to firm up.
When ready to bake preheat the oven to 200 C and line 2-3 baking trays with baking paper. Then scoop small balls of dough onto the trays at an even width apart.
Bake these beauties for 4-5 minutes, then reduce the oven to 175 C and bake for another 4-5 minutes until your mouth watering treats are ready to come out and cool.
Ingredients (makes 24):
- 210g unsalted butter, melted (14 tbsp)
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 1/4 cups plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup peanut m&m’s.
That’s all thats to it! Get baking friends….
