Barbecue Chocolate Chunk Cookies

The weather recently has been absolutely amazing. I think we've eaten outdoors more in the past few weeks than we did in the whole of the last 2 years. Barbecue's are a great way to cook, leaving no nasty cooking smells in the house or extra pans to wash. As we have a gas barbecue I also use it in the colder months and have been known to cook sausages and bacon for New Years Day breakfast on it, although we don't always do the eating outdoors.

Whilst we were away on holiday this last week we used the barbecue almost every day as it was far too hot to cook indoors, and we enjoyed some delicious family meals.

I read a blog post during the week for a brilliant idea of cooking pizzas and cookies on the barbecue and thought I had to give the cookies a go. I was challenged to do some child friendly baking with Flora and thought it would be the perfect opportunity. You can see the photos of my shopping trip to the nearest Tesco store here.

Myself and Hanna set about making the cookies using a slightly adapted recipe that is currently my favourite cookie recipe. Hanna was kitted out in her apron & hair net from a chocolate workshop she went on a couple of days previously so really looked the part! The Flora Buttery is perfect to use in this hot weather as butter is either too hard straight from the fridge or too runny if left out, whereas the Flora is easy to beat straight from the fridge.

We then placed the cookie dough in the fridge whilst we cooked our chops and then rolled it into balls and placed on some parchment lined foil for placing on the bbq once the meat was cooked.

For baking the cookies I covered a pizza stone and baking sheet in foil and then placed the cookies on the parchment on top, closed the lid and left for 8-10 minutes until the cookies had spread out and caramelised. I removed the sheet and placed on a wire rack to cool completely before removing. They did spread out quite a lot but separated easily once cooled down.

Absolutely lovely served with some local ice cream

  1. Those look delicious. I'm so trying this. However, every time I make cookies it turns into one giant one ;) x

  2. I was looking at this in bed this morning (as you do) and said to my partner 'Look, Helen made cookies on the BBQ!' He said 'don't be silly, the mixture would fall down onto the coals'.

    It WAS early...

  3. Wow, they look fabulous. It would be overkill to buy a BBQ just to try this, right?

  4. I love the BBQ cookie idea. Such a great dessert for the summer season :)

  5. What a clever idea, I will have to try this

  6. I HAVE to try this, come back lovely weather!

  7. What a fun idea baking cookies on the BBQ. Will have to tell the OH this.

  8. I always wonder what else to do with the BBQ after I've cooked all the burgers & sausages one family can really eat - I'm going to have to give these a go.

  9. Wow, they look great, although not sure my father in law would want non-meat items cooked on his bbq!)
