Keep your BLT – we’re getting creative with our sandwiches this summer, thanks to Carnival. Choc-chip cookies, ice cream and a profusion of toppings makes for a treat that’s as fun to make as it is tasty.


Serves 6

  • 115g butter, softened
  • 70g brown sugar
  • 70g granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 55g cocoa powder dark
  • 225g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda

  1. Cream the butter using both the brown and granulated sugars.
  2. Mix in vanilla and egg until it’s smooth.

  6. Drop these cookie dough balls onto a cookie sheet lined with baking paper.
  7. Press a few of the remaining chocolate chips into each cookie. Fancy bonus! Also lightly sprinkle just a few grains of sea salt on top of each cookie.
