Homework Post 3: Instructions

How to make a Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie :)


  • 170g of softened butter
  • 200g of soft brown sugar
  • 100g of castor sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract/essence
  • 250g of plain flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of baking powder
  • 200g of any form of chocolate (personally, I would recommend an entire bag of M&Ms)

    (and maybe a handy assistant if your kitchen hates you like mine does)


  1. Preheat oven to 170°C
  2. Cut the chocolate bars up into small chocolate chip chunks and leave to one side for a minute (no need if you're using chocolate the size of M&Ms)
  3. Beat sugar and butter together for one minute until light and fluffy
  4. Crack in the egg and stir to combine with the vanilla
  5. Sieve in the dry ingredients and fold through the mix to form a dough. Sometimes it’s easiest to use your hands
  6. Dump in the chocolate chips and combine
  7. Line a large tray with silicon paper (not needed if non-stick tray) and then press the cookie dough onto it and spread out to all the edges in a circular shape making it about 1cm thick all over (ensure all the chocolate is evenly spread)
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden all over, but still soft in the middle
  9. Roll any leftover dough into a sausage and store rolled up in greaseproof paper to store in the fridge so you always have cookie dough to hand
  10. Remove your giant cookie from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before removing from the tray and silicon paper. Best eaten slightly warm… but will keep for 3 days in an airtight container!
I chose this recipe because it looked amazingly tasty and best of all: IT IS HUGE. The recipe looked super easy to follow, and best of all, it uses ingredients commonly found around the house. It was really easy to make and I had no problems with the recipe or any of the steps like I normally have when I bake. This cookie was really tasty and I plan on making it many more times in the future :) 


  1. Awesome! I think I am going to have to give this recipe a go :)
    I love the photo collage.
    Remind me on Wednesday that I still owe you a commendation for your creative writing.

    1. I shall :)
      There's was a video that came with the recipe as well.

    2. GIANT COOKIE !!! <3 omnomnomnomn XDDD
