First bake of 2012


Wow! its 2012~ Thank God for 2011! It was a pretty good year for me :) Thank God it went smoothly~~ hehe!

So... the last thing I baked was at the end of 2011.. I baked 2 big batches of macarons for friends from interstate and overseas :) Hope they liked them! I've been meaning to bake something for the new year but didn't seem to have the time... until today ^_^" Since tomorrow is Australia Day, I could bake something at night!

I'm calling this recipe Chuck-in Choc chip cookies! haha XD Because you randomly "chuck-in" any chocolate you can find. We chucked in chopped up hershey kisses and chocolate orange pieces. This recipe is great for any leftover chocolate that doesn't seem to taste that nice by itself because when in the cookie, it becomes all warm, melty and oozy! Mmm.. :P

The recipe is from HHB's "drop cookies" here!

Chuck-in Chocolate chip cookies

115g butter/margarine
115g caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla essence
175g plain flour, sifted
175g chopped up chocolate

1. Cream butter and sugar in a bowl till light and fluffy.
2. Add in egg and mix well. Add vanilla essence and mix.
3. Fold in flour until combined. Add chopped chocolate and mix well.
4. Place tablespoonfuls of cookie mix on baking tray (remember to allow room for cookies to spread!) and bake in preheated oven at 180oC for 12-15 minutes.

They expanded!!! :P
Mmm.. soft chocolately goodness!!
I actually found some other photos from a bake last year!!! I tried to make BBB's Colourful choc chip cookies on stick (without the stick because I couldn't find any ><").. I tried to make smiley faces but.. kinda failed =p I made them for my RE students :) using the same recipe as this but used MnM's!
MnM cookies =D
The fail smiley faces! they look kinda creepy xD


  1. Happy Australia Day (: these cookies look good... and yes, I liked those macarons you baked! So many flavour combinations. Hope we can keep on sharing the love and sweetness with those around us in the new year.

  2. Thanks Deb! they did taste pretty good and were gone in 2 days so I'm happy! yes yes! I hope you can be a special guest on my blog soooon =D
