CCCCC - 'Chipsmore' Chocolate Chip Cookies Crave..

Hallo again bloggers..

Today my pregnancy is 4 months, and soon will be 5 months. Lately I experienced some surge of energy that did helps me in doing some chores, but left me with quite an exhaustion and quite bad bachaches. Being used to manage the house did affect my current 'obsession' to manage the house as if I am not pregnant. But nonetheless, though I complained about the tiredness and the backaches, I could never deny the satisfaction I felt inside my heart once things are in order as I want it to be. No one should be blame but myself.. hmm, I guess I pushed myself over the limit of my energy level.

Yesterday, I was enticed by this status in FB of a friend of mine.. enjoying Chipsmore Cookies with tea.. huh.. lately I craved lots of sort of food, which I know are quite difficult to get here. One of them is Chipsmore.. I never found one here in Belgium. Of course there's plenty of chocolate chip cookies sold here, but I just want to have Chipsmore cookies.. (funny right?) Feeling desperate, I ran numerous of researches on how to bake a perfect imitation of Chipsmore Chocolate Chips Cookies, and finally I found one in, which I altered a bit to suit my taste.

Here is the link to the original recipe, Biskut Coklat Cip.. thanks to hoora-perantau for sharing the recipe in

And for those interested to bake the cookies as in the picture above, here is the altered version of the recipe, which I just tried and surprisingly getting lots of interest from my family members.. (when 25 pieces baked, there are just about 12 pieces left). Once the cookies are completely cool, it taste almost the same as the original Chipsmore Cookies! (or maybe it's just me.. after quite a while since I tasted the original Chipsmore)

Chipsmore Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 1/3 cup plain flour + 1/3 cup plain cocoa (u might use Milo)

1/2 tsp soda bikarbonat

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup butter + 1/3 cup planta margarine (I just love using planta!)

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup fine white sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg - room temp

1 cup chocolate chip (u can also use chocolate rice, raisins, crushed nuts, or mixture of everything)


1. Prehat oven for 10 minutes with temp 170C.

2. Sift flour + cocoa + soda bicarbonate + salt, put aside.

3. Beat butter + margarine + brown sugar + white sugar until creamy and smooth. then beat in vanilla for a while, then add in egg and beat the mixture.

4. Next add in 1/3 of the flour mixture, let it mix for a while, then add some more 1/3 of the flour, continue the step until the flour has been combined. Noticed the mixture would be quite thick, (just like a soft dough would look like) to some point you might want to use gloves and mix the mixture using your hand.

5. Add in 1/2 pack of the chocolate chip into the thick mixture.

6. Prepare the baking tray with paper baking and roll a bit of the mixture about 1 inch diameter. (you may use 2 small spoons to create a small ball, or use your hands). put the ball of mixture on your baking tray, and flatten a bit. arrange the flatten balls about 3-4cm from each other and decorate them with the 1/2 pack of the remaining of the chocolate chips. (these cookies will expand when baked)

7. Bake for 15 minutes for chewy cookies, or 20 minutes for crispy cookies. once baked, let it cool before storage, or you may serve the cookies warm.

And now, I am enjoying my bits of altered version of Chipsmore Chocolate Chip Cookies, watching Desperate Housewives, while waiting for my husband to return home for lunch. Resting my back after almost 2 hours cooking and kitchen cleaning. And enjoying the fresh fleet of snow falling from my balcony. Today's menu are quite simple, plain white rice, beef korma, fried sweet pea, cucumber and green apple salad, and omelette, and simple spaghetti bolognaise for little Umair.

Happy baking! and please pardon my English..
