Cooking With Your Toddler - Double Choc Chip Caramel Cookies

Whilst deciding what to cook this week with Jack, with my limited ingredients - no eggs or plain  flour (except wholemeal) I came across a recipe on Jam and Clotted cream for Double Choc Chip Caramel Cookies. I had a quick scan down the ingredients quickly noticing that they don't have any eggs in and the flour used is self raising. Even better when I looked in the cupboard and found a can of condensed milk lurking at the back, but as I didn't have any chocolate chips I would be substituting them for sultanas (thankfully I had exactly 100g).

225g Butter, softened
225g Golden Caster Sugar
200g Condensed Milk
200g Oats
150g Self Raising Flour
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
50g Milk Chocolate Chips
50g White Chocolate Chips


  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180c/160fan and grease 3 large baking trays.
  • Step 2: Cream the butter and sugar together then add in all the other ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Step 3: Shape the dough into golf ball size balls, place 4cm apart on the baking trays and slightly flatten with the back of a fork.
  • Step 4: Bake for 15 mins, take out of the oven and leave on the trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

It was a very easy recipe to follow, and we only had some assistance from the Kitchen Aid for creaming the butter and sugar as it was still on the firm side as I'd forgotten to take it out of the fridge.

Unfortunately it wasn't until I removed the first batch from the oven that I realised Jack had I had forgotten to add the flour!

Oh well, I always wanted to know how to make Florentines! I did manage to scrape it off the pan and the scraps make a delicious topping for yoghurt.....

Anyway, I added flour to the remaining mix and low and behold the next batch turned out how they should.........and even better still? Jack likes them!.....and so does everyone else so now we will be making more, with the other half a can of the condensed milk......and some flour!
