Whenever I make my boyfriend a giant chocolate chip cookie cake, his brothers are always nicking some and when I say some… I mean a lot. I thought that I would make some giant cookies to gift, they aren’t as big as my Giant Chocolate Orange Chip Cookie Cake, but they are larger than most cookies. I thought that a 6 inch cookie would be a great size for a little edible gift, for those who love cookies.
Individual Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 3 – 6 inch Giant Cookies
170g Butter, at room temperature
200g Light Brown Sugar
2 Medium Eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
200g Plain Flour
50g Bread Flour
2 teaspoons Cornflour
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
100g Terry’s Chocolate Orange, chopped
100g Chocolate Chips or Chopped Chocolate
For the Chocolate Orange Frosting
Lakeland Chocolate Orange Frosting, is what I used (but you make your own Chocolate Orange Buttercream or Chocolate Orange Ganache that has been whipped for the topping)
A few Orange Chocolate Chips or Orange Candy Melts, to drizzle (optional)
Milk Chocolate, melted to drizzle (optional)
Sprinkles, or any other edible decorations you desire
- Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4 and grease and baseline 3 – 6 inch round cake tins.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar together until smooth and creamy.
- Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined.
- In a separate bowl whisk together both flours, cornflour and bicarbonate of soda. With your mixer on slow, add your flour into the mix – your cookie dough will be fairly thick
- Add about 3/4 of your chocolate and mix for a few seconds until evenly distributed.
- Spoon your cookie dough mixture evenly between your prepared cake tins, I had 300g in each of my 6 inch tins. Use the back of a spoon or spatula to spread it in evenly. Sprinkle over the rest of your chocolate chips.
- Bake in your preheated oven for 20 – 25 minutes (it can be up to 30 minutes) until your cookie is a light golden brown and a toothpick in the centre comes out clean. The centre of your cookie may still be slightly soft but it will firm up once it is cool.
- Remove for the oven and place the pan on a wire rack to cool.
- Once the tins are cool enough to handle, use a knife or spatula, to go around the edges of your tins to loosen the sides of your cookies remove from the tin and leave on the bases to cool.
- Transfer you cookie to a cake board, plate or the lid of an upturned airtight container, I put mine in an 8 inch round cake liner, as it was going to help transport.
- You can decorate your cookies as desired or leave them plain. I drizzled the melted orange chips, added sprinkles and then I piped the initials of my boyfriends brothers and friend as I was keeping it quite simple.
I took these cookies round when I gave my boyfriend his Giant Chocolate Orange Chip Cookie Cake, I don’t think I’ve seen his brother move so quick when he knew that I baked something. His friend messaged me saying thank-you as he really liked the cookie, which I always find lovely, he didn’t realise that I was going to bake him a cookie that big. When I went round the following day, both of his brother’s had polished off their cookie… Jim (my boyfriend) was going to have to hide his cookie or else it would be under attack
I’m sure whoever you gift these giant cookies too will love them, they will be asking for you to bake them again.
