Step one

Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy

Step two

Add the Golden Syrup, Milk and Chocolate Chips and mix it together.

At this stage, it may look a bit like scrambled eggs.

As long as they are mixed evenly it will work out well.

Step three

Add the flour slowly and mix until the whole mixture is even.

It should be medium in consistency– not too runny and not too thick.

If not, add more flour to thicken it or milk to thin it.

Step four

Spoon out onto two greased baking trays to make about 10 large cookies (don’t worry about the shape of the cookies, they will all end up the same).

Step five

Put the trays into a pre-heated oven of gas mark 5/170C/ fan 150C.

Step six

Keep an eye on the cookies and after about 10 minutes they should start to brown up.

When they are a browny-golden colour take out and allow to slightly cool.

The cookies are best eaten when warm because the slightly un-baked centre will warm up and create the ‘gooey’ part.

Just pop into the microwave for about 30 seconds to re-warm and they have the same effect!

Another way to create a gooey middle is to stuff the cookies with Nutella.

You need to scoop balls of Nutella onto a lined tray and freeze them for about half an hour to an hour.

Make your cookie dough as normal and as you scoop them onto the baking trays– it’s time to add the Nutella.

Add a frozen ball of Nutella to the middle and wrap the cookie dough around the Nutella so it is fully covered.

Bake as normal. But remember, the more you bake, the less gooey they will be!
