125g butter (at room temp)
125g light soft brown sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup
225g self-raising flour
100g chocolate chips (I used a mix of white & milk but you could adjust to your taste)
Cream together the butter & sugar...if your butter is too hard to work with because you forgot to get it out of the fridge early enough (ahem...), pop it in the microwave for just a few seconds.
Next, beat in the golden syrup & egg, and then stir in the flour.
Take teaspoons of the mixture and roll it between your hands into walnut size balls. Squash each ball gently down on a baking tray and pop the chocolate chips on top - pressed lightly into the ball so they stick but not far enough so they are buried.
Cook for 10-15 mins at 180.
