These are so easy to make, do not take very long and go nicely with a cup of mint tea or hot chocolate.

Heat the oven to 180 C 350 F or gas mark 4

Grease two baking trays or use baking parchment

4 ozs butter
3 ozs soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
6 ozs Self Raising Flour
4 ozs chocolate chips
2 tablespoons cold milk

Beat the butter until soft and then add the sugar and cream together until light and fluffy.  Stir in the syrup, flour, milk and chocolate chips. (I used milk and white chocolate chips but you can use anything you like).  Place small spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared trays and bake for 8-10 mins. Allow to cool slightly and then transfer to a wire rack to cool and crisp up.  My daughter likes to eat them when they are still warm and always asks for large ones not  small ones!  Hers is the one on the plate.
