Cadbury Cookies

Cadbury Cookies; chunks of creamy Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate baked into crisp-edged, soft-centred cookies. No one can resist these!

If you come here often, or you’ve had a scroll through my recipes, you’ve probably guessed by now that I’m a little obsessed with chocolate chip cookies. Regular chocolate chip, white chocolate chip, double chocolate, triple chocolate, peanut butter, gluten free, vegan, I’ll take anything in cookie form.

On that note, I come to you today with a recipe that isn’t just a bog standard chocolate chip cookie recipe. There are MILLIONS on the internet and everyone is a little particular about the “perfect” regular chocolate chip cookie. Today, I come bearing something special.

What you see before you are Cadbury Cookies. Yup, Cadbury Cookies.

Cadbury chocolate will always have a special place in my heart as it was my favourite when I was a kid, I’ve already used it to make wonderful Cadbury Cupcakes, so it was only a matter of time before Cadbury Cookies happened.

As you can see, these soft and chewy Cadbury cocoa-flavoured cookies are LOADED with creamy classic Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate and have just the that perfect small amount of crisp round the edges. Whether you’re firmly in the Cadbury lovers’ camp, the Galaxy lovers’ camp or any other camp for that matter, you will not be able to resist these!

As always, the recipe for these Cadbury Cookies is super easy, cheap, and should produce lovely cookies for you to share with little people, other grown-ups, or keep all to yourself. I suggest the latter, I shared them and kinda regretted it…

To make these lovely treats, start by lining 2-3 flat baking trays with some greaseproof paper. This helps prevent the baked cookies from sticking to the trays.

In a large bowl, cream together some soft butter, brown and white sugars and vanilla extract until well combined.

Add an egg and an egg yolk one at a time, beating thoroughly between each addition until they are both well incorporated into the mixture.

Stir in some plain flour, cocoa powder, a little salt and some bicarbonate of soda into the wet ingredients until a dough forms.

Chop up and mix a whole load of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate through the dough. Try not to eat half of it, I understand your impatience.

Scoop the dough using two regular spoons or an ice-cream scoop onto your prepared lined trays, you should get 16-20 balls of dough. Try to keep at least 5cm between each ball of dough. Feel free to make smaller cookies if you like, just make sure to bake them for a couple minutes less to allow for their size!

Place the trays of dough balls into the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes (an hour or two is even better), this allows them to hold their shape better and come out nice and thick and chewy.

In the meantime, preheat your oven – 190 degrees for conventional ovens or 170 degrees for fan ovens.

After chilling, bake the cookies on their trays for 14-16 minutes. They may seem underdone but they will firm up as they cool, I promise!

Cool the cookies on their tray for 5 minutes before cooling completely on wire racks.

Now grab one of these Cadbury Cookies and sink your teeth into this fabulous nostalgic treat!

These are fun to make and even more fun to eat, I really hope you get a chance to try them out. Let me know if you do in the comments below, or on social media!

 

So, are you a Cadbury or a Galaxy lover??
