Malteaser reindeer cookies!
Updated: Dec 15, 2020
120g unsalted butter
80g light brown sugar
100g golden caster sugar
275g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
1 tsp cornflour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 medium egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
100g white chocolate chunks
100g milk chocolate chunks
10 mini reindeers
Melt the butter in the microwave and then mix in both sugars until smooth and well combined.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cocoa powder and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring as you pour.
Add in the chocolate chunks and malteasers. Fold in gently until evenly distributed. If you like leave some aside to decorate the top of the cookies later.
Evenly divide the cookie dough and roll it into smooth balls by hand. I weighed mine out to about 90g each.
Place the cookie dough balls in the freezer to chill for approximately 30 minutes. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 170 degrees fan.
After 30 minutes, take the cookie dough out of the freezer and place on a large tray. I typically do 5 per tray.
Gently push down the balls of cookie dough to ensure they spread a reasonable amount when baking.
Bake the cookies for approximately 12-14 minutes, depending on how soft you like your cookies.
Once cooked, take the cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool down on the side. They will continue to cook as they cool.
