100g in total of chopped chocolate, nuts, raisins, dried apricots, fudge pieces, marshmallows.....

  • Melt the butter in a small pan, or in the microwave.

  • Remove from the heat and stir in the sugars.

  • Mix well to combine, then add the egg and vanilla essence.

  • Finally mix in the flour with your chosen flavourings.

  • Place spoonfuls of the mixture on greased baking trays, setting them well apart to allow for spreading. Cook at 190°C for 10-15min or until light golden brown and just firm. Leave to cool on the trays and store in an airtight container.
