$250 Chocolate Chunk Cookie {A Thermomix Recipe}

Fat Mum Slim /

$250 Chocolate Chunk Cookie {A Thermomix Recipe}You’ve heard the story before, right? The lady who bought a cookie, loved it and asked for the recipe. The company said sure and said that it would just cost her two-fifty. She paid, got the recipe and went home. Later she checked her bank account and realised it wasn’t $2.50 but $250! So she decided to share the recipe with everyone she could.

And now it’s here… in a Thermomix version.

I’m not sure I’d pay $250 for the cookie but it is a VERY good cookie {or biscuit if you like to call them that}. I like it because it’s got more substance than a normal choc-chop cookie. It feels a bit heartier and yummier. I like it. A lot.

Before you start baking though, I want to warn you this. This recipe makes a LOT of cookies. To be precise, it makes 75. You make the mix, roll it into logs and cut them into rounds. You could easily freeze it to use another day, or make loads and give them away to the people you love. Also, if making them into logs is too much effort, you can roll into balls and cook them as your normally would.

$250 Chocolate Chip Cookies


300g rolled oats
150g roasted almonds
150g roasted salted macadamias {Don’t be too fussy here. If you have 300g of almonds, go with that!}
250g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
150g brown sugar
220g white sugar
250g butter
1 tbsp natural vanilla extract
2 eggs
250g plain flour
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 pinch sea salt
250g chocolate chips


♥ Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper and set aside.
♥ Place oats into the mixing bowl and chop 3 seconds/Speed 6. Transfer into a bowl and set aside.
♥ Place almonds and macadamias into mixing bowl and chop 3-5 seconds/Speed 5, until a roughly chopped consistency is achieved. Transfer into a separate bowl to the oats and set aside.
♥ Place chocolate into mixing bowl and grate 4 seconds/Speed 5. Transfer into the bowl with the nuts and set aside.
♥ Place brown sugar and white sugar into mixing bowl and mill 10 seconds/Speed 9.
♥ Add butter and vanilla and mix 30 seconds/Speed 4.
♥ Add eggs, flour, bicarb soda, baking powder, salt and reserved chopped oats and combine 10 seconds/Reverse blade/Speed 6. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with the spatula, then repeat combining 10 seconds/Reverse blade/Speed 6. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula again and combine for a further 10 seconds/Reverse blade/Speed 6.
♥ Transfer mixture to a large bowl, then add chocolate chips and the reserved chocolate/nut mixture. Combine well using the spatula.
♥ Divide cookie dough into 3 even portions, then roll each piece into a log {around 25cm long and 6cm in diameter}. Wrap each log with baking paper and then place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. If you can’t wait {who can?!} you can roll them into balls and cook them this way.
♥ Remove baking paper from cookie dough logs and cut into thick {1cm} slices to form approximately 75 cookies. Place cookies onto baking tray, 3cm apart.
♥ Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are lightly golden. If you’re cooking all 75 of them, you’ll have to cook them in batches unless you have the biggest oven in the world.
♥ Transfer cookies onto a wire rack to cool before serving.

NOTE: You can freeze the dough, just make sure it defrosts before slicing into 1cm rounds.



This recipe is from the new Thermomix cookbook, Festive Flavour. It’s filled with loads {like seriously, I struggled to pick just one recipe to make} of beautiful recipes to make when celebrating Christmas, or just having people around. You can grab it here.

    Can definitely say I wouldn’t pay $250 for a cookie recipe. I’m such a tight wad that even recipe book prices can be extravagant (although I do have 3 shelves full of them!)

    • Agree! But I’ll let someone else pay and then grab the recipe from them. I’m kind like that. ?

      This story has been going around for at least two or three decades. It started with the Neiman Marcus cookie recipe from what I remember. It has slightly changed over time in price, the owner of the recipe, and the story but basically the same thing that a woman UNKNOWINGLY authorizes xx amount of dollars ($100 but ends up $100). Always something gullible. So she gladly shares the umm recipe to “get even”. This story is like one of those chain letters. Always growing and changing just slightly. But I’m sure the cookies are great 🙂

  • Andrea Hay

    I dont have a thermomix, but would love to try this recipe. How do I go about converting it to the regular method?

    • Super easy!

      Do you have a blender? If so just blitz the oats, then the nuts and then the chocolate {all separately}.

      If you don’t have a blender – buy quick oats instead of normal. Chop the nuts as much as you can, and grate the chocolate, or just chop it actually.

      And then everything else, like the blitzing of the sugars… you can ignore… and just cream the sugars with the butters, add the eggs and carry on normal from there.

      I hope that makes sense. 🙂

      • Andrea Hay

        Yes it does. Thanks heaps!

  • Stephanie Solosko

    Excited to try this. Not sure how to convert the dry ingredient measurements from grams to cups.

    • Do you have scales? You could just weigh the ingredients. But next time I make it, I’ll weight and then convert to cups as well. I wish I thought ahead better!!

      • Stephanie Solosko

        Thanks. I’ll keep my eye out for that!

  • Michelle

    If we need to make these nut free, is it as easy as leaving them out? I wonder if the mixture would be a bit too wet without the nuts. Any ideas. Cheers.

    • It’s one of the driest mixes I’ve used for cookies, so I think it’d be fine. I’d just increase the oats ever-so-slightly to 350g and see how it feels. If the mixture is sticking to your hands, you’ll want to add a little more flour to compensate.

      • Michelle

        Thanks Chantelle. I’ll do that next time. I was a bit eager, so just went ahead and made them without. They were very sticky so I just put dollops of mixture on the tray instead of rolling them and slicing them. It made about 60 flat chewy bickies. Not like your pretty ones I’m afraid.

    it’s a fake story, but hey the biscuits are yummy so who cares if someone made up a tall tale, check out the link;

  • Tarina Hodgson

    Just checking – it is two lots of chocolate? So 500gm in total? Not that I mind. Chocolate is chocolate, and chocolate in cookies is a good thing!

  • I think I need to try this biscuit recipe when I get home from work.

  • emmissyme

    Just made these and the kids say yum!!!
    I did not have any nuts in the house so I made it with pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and quinoa.
    Turned out perfect and very yummy!
    Thanks for the recipe.
