The Food and Nutrition Society hosted their own Great Christmas Bake Off amongst their members, and one entry certainly rose to the challenge and won the top spot.

Society member Catrin Rigby claims her win and shares her recipe below so you can taste the success from home this festive season!


Ingredients List:


  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 120g self-raising flour
  • 25g unsweetened cocoa powder (sifted to remove lumps)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 110g butter (softened)
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 50g light brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Christmas sprinkles




1. Combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt in a large bowl.

2. In a smaller bowl, mix the sugar and softened butter. Add the egg and mix in the vanilla extract.

3. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix again until evenly dispersed.

4. Transfer the dough to a bowl (it will be very sticky), cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

5. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Ball one tablespoon of dough per cookie and place as balls on the tray. Add Christmas coloured sprinkles and pat them in to ensure they don't burn.

6. Bake for 12-14 minutes then allow to cool on a cooling rack.
