I HAVE SUCH A COOL POST FOR YOU TO READ/WATCH TODAY – IT’S SO EXCITING THAT CAPS LOCK IS STAYING ON FOR THIS SENTENCE, BUT I PROMISE I’LL GO BACK TO LOWER CASE SOON.
I MAKE COOKIES AND TALK IN THIS VIDEO.
Yeah, you actually see my face and hear my voice (I’m always intrigued when I finally get to hear/see a blogger when I’ve been following them and reading their blog for a while, but that miiight just be me – cue stalker Izy). I explain a little about how I make my videos too, so if you’ve been wondering how it’s done, it’s yo LUCKY DAY, SON.
p.s. make sure you watch the bloopers riiiiight at the end. They’re quality.
The awesome team at SORTED invited me to their studio a few weeks ago to film one of my signature gif-ideos (a.k.a. super long gifs, a.k.a. kinda/not really-stop-motions, a.k.a. videos that some people are really confused by/ hate/love). So of course I said heck yeah and rocked up to the studio like ima make you some cookies.
I revisited my nutella and salted caramel cookie recipe – this time making the cookies with caramel-filled chocolates (I COULDN’T FIND ROLOS ANYWHERE so I settled for Cadbury’s caramel dairy milk which was still A+++) instead of making salted caramel sauce. So they’re actually EASIER and more delicious than before.
– you can find the salted caramel recipe here (don’t worry, it’ll lits take less than 15 minutes)
– alternatively, you can melt 1/2 cup of soft caramels with 2-3 tbsp of milk and use that to fill the cookies, or just put a caramel-filled chocolate (like rolos or something) into the middle of the cookie with the nutella.
- ½ cup (110g) butter
- 1½ cups (350g) light brown sugar
- ½ cup (55g) cocoa powder
- 2 eggs
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¾ tsp baking powder
- 2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
- 3.5 oz (100g) milk or dark chocolate chips
- flaky salt/ fleur de sel/ maldon salt, for sprinkling
- approx. ½ cup (8 tbsp) nutella
- 1x recipe for Salted caramel (see notes for recipe) OR 15-16 caramel-filled chocolates
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Take off the heat and stir in the brown sugar and eggs. Then add the cocoa, salt and baking powder and stir until well combined. Add the flour and stir until no floury patches are left. Lastly stir in the chocolate chips.
- Make the caramel, if using (see notes for recipe)
- Take 1 heaped tbsp of dough, use your finger make a large indentation the centre of the dough; fill the indentation with a small blob of nutella (like ½ tsp ish), and top it up with the still-warm salted caramel, or a caramel-filled chocolate. Top with a flattened tablespoon of dough, and seal the edges. (see video at top of page)
- Sprinkle with fleur de sel and bake for 8-10 minutes.
