Author Cookie recipe adapted from “Cioccolato” – Jacqueline Bellefontaine – 1998 Parragon, London


  • 75 gms – 1/3 cup sugar
  • 75 gms – 1/3 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ tbsp milk
  • 225 gms – 1 scant cup flour
  • 25 gms – ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • Chocolate M&M’s


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment on low to medium speed.  Mix until well incorporated.
  2. Add the egg and milk and mix well. Sift the flour and cocoa powder together, add to the bowl and mix well. The dough will be ready when it clumps around the paddle attachment.
  3. Roll it into a 6 mm – ¼ inch thick sheet and cut out your cookies using a cardboard stencil (I make these all the time and it is quite easy, all you need is a printed image of what you want to make, some clean cardboard, some transfer paper, a pen and a sharp exacto knife.  Put the transfer paper between the image and the cardboard and transfer the image onto the cardboard by tracing the outline with a pen.  Then cut out the shape).
  4. Put the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper and decorate them with M&M’s. To make the whiskers, use a fork and gently press the cookies with it.
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 15 minutes.
  6. When ready, let them cool down on the baking tray for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool down completely.
