One giant chocolate cookie covered in candy.
- 30 grams (2 tablespoons) unsalted butter

- 1/2 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 65 grams (1/3 cup + 2 level tablespoons) plain flour

- 45 grams (1/4 cups) pink and purple Smarties or M&M’s
- Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Line a cookie sheet with baking or parchment paper.
- Melt your butter in the microwave until just melted. Add brown sugar and caster sugar and give it a stir. Add egg and vanilla and stir.

- Press extra chocolate chips and candy on top. Bake for approximately 12 minutes. Leave to cool completely.
*To get half a large egg, crack one large egg in a small bowl. Beat with a fork and then halve it. The best way to determine exactly half is by weighing the egg. Our large eggs are approximately 50 grams so I used 25 grams of egg.
