Cake Sale - plus Recipes

Some of you may have seem a couple of photos on Instagram (Username:chelseajadeloves) of a cake sale I did on Friday at Lush Nottingham. I was in store selling cookies and cakes to raise money for a Women's Aid refuge in Nottingham over the Christmas period. My cookies and chocolate snowballs were particularly popular and so I thought I would share the recipes with you lovely ladies.

Chocolate Digestive Snowballs

- 1 pack of digestive biscuits (400g)
- Half a cup of cocoa powder
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (395g)
- Icing sugar for dusting

- Crush the digestive biscuits into crumbs and stir in the cocoa powder.
- Make a well in the centre of the mix and pour in the condensed milk.
- Mix in the condensed milk thoroughly to form a moist mixture and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls, dust in icing sugar.
- Chill and serve in an airtight container.

Tip - Use dessicated coconut for dusting for an alternative flavour.

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

- 100g Margarine
- 75g soft light brown sugar
- 1 tbsp Golden Syrup
- 175g Self Raising Flour
- 100g Chocolate Chunks

-Preheat oven at gas mark 4/180 degrees
- Cream together the margarine and sugar
- Stir in the golden syrup, flour and chocolate chunks
- Use your hand to press together the mixture into a dough
- Take small chunks of dough and place on a baking tray (lined with greaseproof paper)
- Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden

Tip - Use chocolate chunks or chop up a bar of chocolate rather than the sorry excuse for chocolate chunks known as chocolate chips!

Tip - Dough does not need to be neat, the messy uneven chunks result in the Millie's style cookies rather than a smooth biscuit.

This recipe is perfect for vegan cookies as you can use a vegan marge and whatever extra ingredient you want!

Let me know if you try any of these out!
