DESPITE food chains being closed throughout lockdown, many have continued to provide their biggest fans with recipes throughout so those missing their favourite treats don’t have to go without.
Among them, sandwich giant Subway has put together a few easy-to-follow videos and shared them on Facebook – and now we can all indulge in the iconic double chocolate cookies made famous by the food chain.
While the chain might be most known for providing a range of sandwiches and salads, no meal is ever complete without at least one mouth-watering chewy choc chip cookie – after all, that’s why most of us go there, right?
With that in mind, the video shared on Subway’s Facebook page was very much a welcomed one with many fans eager to try their hand at baking a batch themselves.
To make 16 cookies, you need 10 ingredients and about 35 minutes – which really isn’t much time at all.
And be warned, you may be VERY tempted to scoff them all down at once.
Subway Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
125g salted butter, softened
100g light brown sugar
75g granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 medium egg
150g plain flour,
sifted 40g cocoa powder,
sifted 1⁄2 tsp baking soda
100g white chocolate, roughly chopped
200g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
The video reveals that you need salted butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, an egg, plain flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, white chocolate and milk chocolate – we know, you’re drooling already.
To whip them up, mix the melted butter and sugar in a bowl, and then add in the egg and vanilla essence and stir.
Then sift in the dry ingredients and mix, before adding in the chopped up chocolate.
If you manage to get that far without taste testing the mix (give yourself a round of applause), scoop out the mix and place them onto a baking tray ready for the oven.
The hardest, but most satisfying part is watching as they transform in the oven for twelve whole minutes.
Aside from its cookies, Subway has also released recipes for its Herbs and Cheese Bread and the Chicken Teriyaki Sub, and plan to release recipes for its Meatball Marinara Sub and Chipotle Southwest Sauce over the next few days.
Other food chains that have blessed us with iconic recipes include Wagamama, who showed everyone how to make a delicious katsu curry from home.
Pizza Express and Greggs have also shared various recipes throughout lockdown, and so too has IKEA and even McDonald’s.
