125g butter, softened

1 1/4 cups firmly packed soft brown sugar

1 egg

1 1/4 cups plain flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/3 cup cocoa powder (we love Donovans)

1 cup (125g) dark chocolate drops (we love Donovans Chocolate)

1/2 cup Dried Cranberrieswhole or sliced

1/2 cup Cashew Nuts, roughly chopped



Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.


Place butter, sugar and egg in a bowl and beat until creamy.


Sift together flour, baking soda and cocoa and stir into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate, cranberries and nuts.


Drop heaped tablespoons of the mixture onto prepared trays, leaving space for cookies to expand during cooking. Press to flatten slightly.


Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until set around the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


Store in an airtight container for up to a week, or wrap in cellophane bags tied tightly with string to give as gifts.
