  • 125g butter, very soft
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 50g soft light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 50g white chocolate, melted
  • 175g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 75g dark chocolate chunks or chips
  • 50g walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 25g freeze-dried raspberry bits
  • 25g mini meringues, chopped into small chunks


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Using an electric whisk, beat the butter with the sugars until creamy and pale.

  • STEP 2

    Beat in the vanilla, egg and white chocolate very briefly, then stir in the flour and bicarb to a soft dough.

  • STEP 3

    Use your hands to work in the dark chocolate pieces, walnuts, raspberry bits and meringue chunks until evenly distributed.

  • STEP 4

    Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper or silicone baking mats and use your hands to roll the dough into 12 balls, leaving a 5cm space between each.

  • STEP 5

    Bake for 10-12 minutes until pale golden and puffed.

  • STEP 6

    Leave to cool on the trays for at least 30 minutes before eating – this will help the centres firm-up into a blondie-like texture.
