Is there any other chocolate that compares to Kinder? Nope, didn’t think so 😅 That creamy white chocolate filling encased in delicious milk chocolate. You guys absolutely LOVE my Kinder Bueno Brownies recipe, so that got me thinking about other Kinder recipe ideas. First thought… Kinder Cookies!!! Trust me when I say you need to bake these ASAP.

Read these top tips before you start

Kinder Cookies are super easy to make, but there are a few top tips that will take your cookies from good to amazing!

  1. Use a mix of brown and white sugar for a soft and chewy texture.
  2. Chill the cookie dough for a deeper flavour.
  3. Roll the cookie dough into balls for thicker cookies.
  4. Leave plenty of space between each cookie so they have enough room to spread out (see image below).
  5. Under-bake and leave to cool for a soft and gooey centre.
  6. Push a few extra chunks of Kinder chocolate into the top of each baked cookie.

Cookie dough balls

Why do I need to chill the cookie dough?

Refrigerating the cookie dough develops the flavours and massively improves the cookie texture. Cold cookie dough = less spread = thicker softer cookies.

Chill the cookie dough in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or for best results leave it overnight. Let the cookie dough soften at room temperature for 15 minutes before rolling into balls.

How long do I bake Kinder Cookies for?

Did you know cookies continue to cook as they cool down? That’s why if you want soft and chewy Kinder cookies, it’s best to take them out of the oven whilst they’re still under-baked.

For all of my cookie recipes, I recommended preheating your oven to 180°C (fan). Once preheated, put the cookies in the oven and set your timer for 10-12 minutes. They’re ready to come out of the oven when the outer edge of the cookie is set and golden, but the middle is still soft and pale but not wet.

  • Are you having trouble with your oven temperature? I highly recommend using an oven thermometer to accurately measure the temperature inside your oven. You pop it inside your oven and it will tell you the temperature on the dial as the oven heats up. I started using one last year and I soon realised my oven took much longer to preheat than I thought.

How long will they stay fresh for?

Store your Kinder Cookies in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 4 days.

Can I freeze Kinder Cookies?

Yes absolutely! Roll the cookie dough into balls, then wrap individually in clingfilm. Store in the freezer for up to 1 month. When you’re craving a cookie, just bake the cookie dough balls from frozen for 13-14 minutes at 180°C (fan oven).

Ingredients
  

  • 160 g Unsalted butter
  • 100 g White caster sugar
  • 150 g Light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract at room temperature
  • 1 medium Whole egg at room temperature
  • 1 medium Egg yolk
  • 275 g Self-raising flour
  • 200 g Kinder Chocolate Bars broken into chunks

Instructions
 

Make the cookie dough

  • Place the unsalted butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30-40 seconds until the butter has melted.
  • Add the two sugars, vanilla extract, whole egg and egg yolk into the melted butter and mix together until fully combined.
  • Now fold in the flour. The mixture will come together into a cookie dough.
  • Add the Kinder Chocolate chunks (save a handful for later) and fold into the cookie dough.
  • Cover the bowl with clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight for best results.

Roll and bake the cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan oven) and line 2 large, flat baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  • Take the cookie dough out of the fridge and leave to soften at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Scoop a heaped tablespoon of cookie dough and use your hands to roll it into a ball. Place on the baking tray and do not flatten. Repeat this step until all the cookie dough has been used up. Remember to leave roughly 8-10cm between each ball so they have enough room to spread out.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies should be golden on the edges but the middle still soft, pale and under-baked.
  • As soon as the cookies are out of the oven, push a few chunks of Kinder Chocolate into the top of each cookie.
  • Leave on the baking tray for 15 minutes to cool down and firm up. This will change the cookie texture so resist temptation to tuck in straight away!

Millionaires Cookie Cups

Millionaires Cookie Cups

Okay, confession time, I’ve become a bit obsessed with cookie cups. I know they are pretty old school now, but I just love how easy they are to make and I honestly believe they are making a come back. I mean who doesn’t love a cookie shaped like a cup, and filled with deliciousness!?

A few weeks ago I shared my Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups (also a must try recipe) and now we have these seriously indulgent Millionaires Cookie Cups. I’ve decorated them with Cake Angels Salted Caramel & Brownie Fudge Posh Toppers which were kindly sent to me as a gift.

Reasons to love these Millionaires Cookie Cups

  • The cookies cups are soft and chewy
  • They’re filled with cheat’s caramel (more on this below) and a layer of creamy cheesecake
  • Quick and easy recipe perfect for beginners
  • Perfect for picnics, BBQ’s or a quick and easy dessert
Millionaires Cookie Cups

Imagine the same delicious flavour and texture as a soft baked cookie, but moulded into the shape of a “cup”. The cups can then be filled with different mixtures or sauces. These Millionaires Cookie Cups are filled with caramel, cheesecake and melted chocolate. Yum!

Making cookie cups couldn’t be easier, but there are a few tips I’ve learnt along the way that are worth sharing with you:

Tip 1: Make sure you have the right equipment
You will need a cupcake or muffin baking tray that has a least 9 holes (this recipe will make 9 cookie cups). Here is a link to the exact cupcake tray I used, it’s rose gold and super cute 😊
You will also need a round flat-bottomed small jar, or a teaspoon – you’ll use this to press down the middle of each cookie and create a cup shape.

Tip 2: It’s best to under-bake the cookies
The cookies are baked first then shaped into cups, which is why it’s important that the middle of the cookies are still soft and under-baked. I’ve recommended a baking time of 14-16 minutes at 170°C (fan oven). The outside edge of the cookies should be firm and golden in colour, but the middle should still look pale and really soft.

Tip 3: Shape the cookies whilst they’re warm
As soon as the cookies are out of the oven, grab your small jar or teaspoon and firmly press down the middle of each cookie. You will need to create a hole that’s roughly 3-4cm deep, so that there is enough room to fill the cookie cups. Don’t worry if they look raw and under-baked in the middle, as the cookie cups cool down they will firm up and set properly.

Tip 4: Remove the cookie cups when cool
The best way to do this is to first leave the cookie cups to cool completely in the baking tin, this will most likely take an hour. Then run a sharp knife around the edge and gently pop them out.

What is cheat’s caramel?

I’m not ashamed to admit that I used shop-bought Carnation Caramel for this recipe, because sometimes you just need to cut corners and after all these years I still struggle to make caramel from scratch 😅 With Carnation Caramel you just crack open the tin, give it a really good stir and spoon it into the cookie cups. Simple!

Quick-method cheesecake filling

There’s no chilling, setting or baking required for the cheesecake filling. It’s simple, quick and can be enjoyed straight away. I call it my “quick-method” cheesecake 😊

You’ll only need 4 ingredients to make it:

  • Full-fat cream cheese (my favourite brand is Philadelphia) – pleaseeeee do not swap this for a reduced or low fat version, as the consistency will be too thin.
  • Icing sugar – sift it first to remove any lumps
  • Double Cream
  • Vanilla extract – I love the delicate flavour vanilla adds to the cheesecake

To make the cheesecake filling, first whisk the cream cheese and icing sugar together until smooth. Then add the double cream and vanilla extract, and whisk on high speed until the mixture is thick. Test the consistency by holding the whisk in the air, the mixture should stay put and not fall off.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups

These delicious Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie cups are my modern day twist on a classic cheesecake flavour. They just scream summer! This bake really does have it all in terms of texture and flavour. The cookie cups are crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle, the jam is sweet and sticky and the cheesecake filling is smooth and creamy. I decided to keep the decoration simple by placing a whole fresh strawberry on top, but if you fancy something even more special, try making a strawberry purée and drizzle it over the cheesecake.

Chocolate Orange Brookies

Let me cut to the chase. If you aren’t a fan of crazy-indulgent desserts, these chocolate orange brookies may not be the recipe for you. If you are a complete chocoholic and lover of all things sweet, then keep reading 😅

They start with a buttery cookie dough layer filled with chocolate orange, on top is a seriously fudgy brownie layer, also filled with chunks of Terry’s chocolate orange. I was going to drizzle over melted chocolate orange, but I think that might have tipped them over the edge!

  • Chewy, fudgy and gooey…these Chocolate Orange Brookies have it all when it comes to texture.
  • I’ve included step-by-step photos to make this recipe fool-proof.
  • Don’t like chocolate orange? No problem, just swap for milk or even white chocolate.
Chocolate Orange Brookies

How to make Chocolate Orange Brookies

This recipe isn’t but it will take a little time and a lot of mixing bowls! Here’s an overview of how to make my chocolate orange brookies:

  1. Make the cookie dough. Using two sugars helps improve the chewy texture, and adding a half teaspoon of salt helps balance the sweetness.
  2. Make the brownie mixture. Use high quality 70% dark chocolate such as Lindt Excellence 70% Dark, and whisk the eggs and sugar really well to get a lovely crackly brownie top.
  3. Layer the mixtures. Press the cookie dough out into the base of the baking tin. Then pour the brownie mixture on top, spreading it out to the edges.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remember, if in doubt take them out. These brookies will carry on cooking as they cool down.
  5. Leave to cool completely. This is likely to take at least 4 hours, or you can bake them the day before and leave them in the baking tin overnight.

Recipe FAQs: Chocolate Orange Brookies

What baking tin should I use?

This recipe uses an 8x8inch square baking tin. If you’re using a bigger baking tin, decrease the baking time by 3-4 minutes. If your baking tin is smaller in size, increase the baking time by 3-4 minutes.

How do I know when the brookies are ready?

The brookies are ready when the top is no longer shiny or wet, small cracks have started to show around the outside edge, and if you give the baking tin a gentle shake, the brookies should wobble underneath.

Do I have to let them cool completely?

This is the MOST important step! That’s why I’ve highlighted it in red 😅 Slice your brookies whilst warm and they’ll fall apart, resulting in a hot (but still tasty) mess. Leaving them to cool completely gives these chocolate orange brookies time to set properly and turn fudgy. 

I don’t like chocolate orange, can I use other types of chocolate?

Absolutely! My husband isn’t a fan of chocolate orange, so I totally get it 😄. You can just substitute the chocolate orange for milk or white chocolate instead.

Giant Easter Chocolate Cookie Cake

Easter Chocolate Cookie Cake

Reasons to love this Easter Chocolate Cookie Cake

  • It’s surprisingly easy to make and you don’t need to chill the cookie dough (hurrah 😅)
  • The cookie texture is chewy on the outside and soft-baked in the middle.
  • Crunchy Maltesers are dotted throughout the chocolate cookie cake.
  • Easter baking doesn’t get better than this!
Easter Chocolate Cookie Cake slice showing the inside
  1. Make the cookie dough. Using 2 types of sugar and 1 extra egg yolk makes this cookie cake soft and chewy in texture. Chopped Maltesers are added to the cookie dough to make this a chocolate cookie cake!
  2. Press the cookie dough out in a tart tin. Simply transfer the cookie dough to a 9inch fluted tart tin and press it out into an even layer.
  3. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Look for a golden outer edge with a pale, slightly underbaked middle. Remember cookies continue to cook as they cool down, so it’s always better to underbake cookies if you want a soft-baked texture.
  4. Make the buttercream. Use whatever food colouring you like, I went for a pastel pink and green because they remind me of Easter.
  5. Decorate the cookie cake. Here comes the fun part 🤩 Place Malteser Mini Bunnies in the middle and then pipe a pretty pastel border around the edge.

Ta-dah, your Easter Chocolate Cookie Cake is ready!

Can I use other types of Easter chocolate?

Of course! Feel free to swap the Maltesers for any other type of Easter chocolate. Mini Eggs would be absolutely delicious or you could use a mix of milk and white chocolate chips instead.
