The BEST Chocolate Cookie Recipe

As a person who watches YouTube videos regularly I have seen these cookies a million times before. When Tanya Burr first came with this cookie recipe I knew that I had to make them myself, but as time went by I forgot all about them. Until recently when I saw them pop up in a lot of vlogs and my cookie cravings were immediately triggered. Because when people say this is THE BEST cookie they have ever tasted, you know that I can't wait to try them myself.

After making and taste testing them myself I can honestly say that these are indeed THE BEST cookies I have ever tasted. *Insert millions of heart-eyes emojis*. They are just so chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I especially like them when they are still warm, because then the chocolate is a bit melted. They are not the healthiest option, but from time to time we got to treat ourselves right?

What do you need?
(For 10 cookies)
200g softened butter
300g caster sugar 
1 large egg
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
A little dash of milk 

And add A LOT of chocolate. I used a couple of bars which turns out to be these measurements:
200g of milk chocolate
225g of white chocolate
75g of butterscotch chocolate
A lot of Rolos

Feel free to add whatever chocolate you like! 

How do you make these delicious cookies and go straight to chocolate heaven?
First of all, preheat your oven to 200 °C.
Put your softened butter and caster sugar in a large mixing bowl and cream them together. I used a spoon to do this and it went quite well. A mixer would also work and that would be a lot quicker too!
Add your egg to the buttery mixture and keep on mixing. Then pop all your dry ingredients into the mixing bowl and keep on stirring until your dough is perfect. If your dough looks a bit dry you can add a dash of milk, but my dough looked perfectly fine, so I didn't do that.
Break up all the chocolate and add them to the dough, except most of the Rolos. (I added a few sneaky ones into the mixture itself, but I mainly added them on top at the end).
Make sure all the chocolate is well distributed through the mixture and take small handfuls of dough. Place those onto your two baking trays that are lined with baking paper. The cookies will spread in the oven and you don't want to get one large cookie, although that would be quite cool haha. Also now it's time to add the Rolos on top of the cookies! Make sure you press them into the dough, because the caramel will burst out of the cookie like a volcano.
Pop your trays into the oven for about 10-11 minutes. I think that 11 minutes is a bit too long, so you just have to see what works for you. When you get the cookies out of the oven they are still soft, which is normal, so don't put them in for like 25 minutes, because then you will get a cookie as hard as a brick instead of a delicious, chewy cookie.
Now you let them cool for about 30 minutes. I know this is hard, because I was so tempted to take a bite, but they really need that time to cool down.

In the meantime you can make a nice cup of tea or a refreshing glass of lemonade, put on your favourite TV-show (I just finished all 9 seasons of HIMYM. Last year I also did this, so I thought it was time to do it again and I actually have a new record on how fast I watched them all. It's too embarrassing to tell this record *3 weeks, #nolife*, so I will spare you that haha) and take in the delicious, chocolaty scent that has filled the room. And then there is that moment when you take a bite out of that crunchy, chewy cookie and oh boy it's THE BEST. I wish I still had some left.
