Baking: Salted Caramel Lava Cookies

As Easter approaches us, of course baking is a must. Baking overall is just so much fun, especially getting to eat the final outcome! Baking is such a universal thing, baking with your grandma, with your other half, even with your little sister and her friends, which is exactly what we did!

Why don't you try make this sweet treats with young ones this Easter? You could swap out the toffees for mini creme eggs if you wish to create super Easter cookies!


Makes: 16 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 16-18 mins

Ingredients:

- 150g (5oz) salted butter, softened
- 160g (5 1/2oz) soft light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 260g (8oz) plain flour, sifted
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 x 100g pack plain chocolate chips (80p)
- 1 x 100g pack macadamia nuts, roughly chopped (£2)
- 16 soft toffees (89p)
- pinch sea salt flakes, plus more to serve (optional)

Total: £3.69


Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C and line two large baking trays with nonstick baking paper.

2. Put the butter in a large mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add the sugar and beat for a further 3-4 minutes, until fluffy and light. Stir in the egg and vanilla extract. Add the flour and baking powder and, using a wooden spoon, gradually combine to form a soft dough. Stir in the chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.

3. Put the toffees on a plate and scatter with the sea salt flakes. Press them on the surface of the toffees so they stick. Divide the dough into 16 pieces, then press a toffee into the centre of each. Shape the pieces into ball shapes, with the toffee enclosed in each; flatten a little. Space the 16 cookies out on the trays, allowing room to spread.

4. Bake for 16-18 minutes, until lightly golden. Leave to cool for a few minutes, but serve warm, while the caramel centres are still molten. Scatter with another pinch of sea salt, if you like.

  2. One of my April goals was to bake more. Seeing this post makes me want to even more. That cookie oozing out toffee looks so amazing. For a recipe so cheap as well this definitely looks like a must bake.
    This easter egg hunt also looks so interesting and is so creative. I'll have to set myself a reminder! Good luck

  3. I'm not a huge fan of sweets, but I love myself a good bit of salted caramel. There's something lovely about the combination of salt and caramel and how perfect they are together that just really gets to me. I wasn't planning on doing much for the Easter days, but I may give this recipe a go and tweet the end product to you two.

    Thank you for the recipe! ♡
