Choc chips and sweetened condensed milk

I think the only thing to do after having a tantrum filled morning today was to bake
 and these are the yummiest choc chip cookies ever!  I always tend to eat way too much cookie mixture before they even make it into the oven!  Apart from the choc chips, I think the reason lies with the sweetened condensed milk.  I've had a fond relationship with sweetened condensed milk since my Grade 8 school camp where we went to a place called Digaloo (!!!! and yes, you really did have to dig a loo if you needed to go, which I didn't for the 3 days we were there...) and were encouraged to do our own grocery shopping for the event.  I believe my groceries consisted of chocolate, yoghurt (which of course went off) and several tubes of sweetened condensed milk!

This makes bunches if you keep your cookie balls a reasonable size.

250g butter, at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla essence
2/3 cup caster sugar
200ml of sweetened condensed milk
2 1/2 cups SR flour
375grams of choc bits

Line some baking trays with baking paper and heat up your oven to arround 180.  Using your electric mixer cream the buitter, sugar, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk till its well combined.  Add the flour and choc bits and roll into nice balls.  Pop them on your trays, give them a little press with a fork and bake away for around 12-14 minutes.  Let them cool a bit on the tray before transferring them to a wire rack.

Eat 1 or 2 or praps 3 with a nice coffee or tea and reflect on the joys a 3 year old full on tantrum in the middle of the NAB can bring you!

Just discovered this....

Tantrums are clearly exhausting!


  1. Oooo yummy yummo! Now who has to shove a few cookies in the post!? Huh, huh??
    Oh your little lady is gorgeous. They are so beautiful once they've worn themselves ragged after a tanty. Mr Angus did that prior to bed this evening, he was SO tired after a day at preschool. And I would throw a tantrum in the NAB too ;o) xo
