  • Whip up a batch of famous Millie’s cookies at home. This simple recipe takes just five easy steps.

    Light brown sugar and golden syrup make these cookies extra sweet and chewy. Millie’s cookies are much chewier and softer than our classic chocolate chip cookies. This recipe makes 20 cookies in just 20 minutes prep time. We’ve used dark chocolate chips in this recipe but you could swap for milk, white or even nuts such as pecan or walnuts.


    • 125g unsalted butter, softened
    • 100g light brown sugar
    • 2tbsp golden syrup
    • 1tsp vanilla essence
    • 160g self-raising flour
    • 150g chocolate, milk, dark or white broken into 0.5cm chunks


    • To start making your cookies, preheat the oven to 180C, gas 4.

    • Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Beat the golden syrup into the butter and sugar with the vanilla essence. Mix in flour and chocolate chunks until just combined.

    • Take a teaspoonful of the mixture, roll it into a ball, then place onto a greased baking tray, flattening it slightly with the palm of your hand. Repeat with the remaining dough, allowing plenty of room for the cookies to spread while baking.

    • Bake for 12 mins until golden brown.

    • Allow chocolate chip cookies to cool on the tray for few mins before transferring them to a wire rack.
