Kids in the Kitchen- Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. I had a surprise this week when Star said she wanted to cook, she normally doesn’t want to take part without a lot of persuasion. She’d been playing a game on the computer (on Friv) and had come across a recipe for chocolate, chocolate chip cookies. So she wanted to make them.

First of all let me say thank you to last weeks linker, the Brilliant Chef D who won a competition with his beautiful Father’s Day Cake. Well done D 🙂

I love it when you share your posts they are a great source of inspiration and I like to keep them all together on my Pinterest Board. The linky is open for a month so there is plenty of time to join in, and if you don’t know what to make then check out the pinterest board.

Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Makes 18 large cookies


  • 200g butter
  • 300g soft brown sugar
  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 60g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 125g chocolate chips


  • put the butter and sugar in the bowl and beat until soft and smooth
  • add the eggs and beat again.
  • Sift in the dry ingredients, flour, cocoa powder and and baking powder and mix together
  • fold in the chocolate chips. 
  • grease three baking trays and dollop the mixture in large spoonfuls, six to each tray (you can make them neater circle shapes but don’t squash them down too much, and make sure you leave plenty of space in between each one)
  • bake in a preheated oven at 180C/gas mark 4 for 10-12 minutes
  • Leave to cool on baking tray
We really enjoyed the cookies and Star really enjoyed making them. We had some chocolate chips left over so we sprinkled them over the cookies while they were still warm.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)

    Hasn't Star done well. Perhaps she'll catch the baking bug now and there will be no stopping her! Those cookies look amazing – they'd rival any shop bought ones for sure – they look so round and 'uniform' like when they have those bake off challenges where they all need to look the same. Well done Star. x

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
