Honeycomb choc chip cookies

More and more cookies!! Made these for a get together and my mum said that of all the cookies I've ever made, they are her favourite. :)

Makes about 24 small to medium cookies


125g butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup self raising flour
1 handful of choc chips
1 cup chopped honeycomb pieces


1. Preheat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius, and line two cookie trays with baking paper
2. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy
3. Beat in egg and vanilla essence
4. Stir in flour until just combined
5. Fold in honeycomb and choc chips
6. Roll spoonfuls into balls and place on prepared trays
7. Bake for about 9 mins or until very slightly golden.
8. Remove from oven and cool on trays.

Made to exact instructions. They went really thin, and more like sheets of toffee than cookies.

Hi. Thanks for the feedback. Not sure why they turned out that way for you 'y first thought is that maybe the honeycombe you used was a different type to the one I used (mine was Cadbury's Crunchy pieces, chopped). You might be able to overcome this by using less honeycombe, using perhaps 1/4 cup more flour, & refrigerating the dough before after you roll the cookie dough balls. I'm no expert of course. Feel free to try it if you like, but I'm out of ideas of this doesn't work. This is just a hobby blog after all, and I have never been professionally trained in baking.

This looks awesome, will definitely be trying it out. Quick question, how many grams to one of your cups?

Hi, thanks for stopping by. I use a standard Australian Metric Cup measurement (this is 250ml of volume). What you're measuring determines how many grams are in a cup. A cup of honeycomb pieces weighs less than a cup of flour, for example. That being said, a cup of flour is about 150g. You may be able to use that as a guide. Google may be able to help you out with the rest. That's how I've found out how many grams are in a cup of butter (as a lot of American recipes measure their butter in cups). I'm sorry if this recipe doesn't work out, someone else said that they didn't work at all. All I can say is it worked for me & I don't know what went wrong for the other person.
