  1. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla, salt and flour and mix together to form a smooth, firm dough.
    Pour in the chocolate chips and mix through, then take a teaspoon of cookie dough and roll into a small ball. Place on a plate or tray and then op in the freezer to firm up.
  2. Whilst the dough is getting nice and firm it’s time to make the batter. Place the flour In a large bowl and add the milk, egg, baking powder, salt and honey or sugar. Whisk together to form a thick smooth batter and then pop to one side to rest.
  3. After an hour or so the cookie dough balls will be nice and frozen, Heat a pan of oil on the stove. You can check if the oil has reached the correct temperature by dropping a small drop of batter into the oil and when it bubbles all around the batter, the oil has reached a good frying temperature. So remove the balls from the freezer and drop each ball into the batter, roll them around, making sure it is completely covered, then gently drop into the hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove and place on kitchen paper to drain.
    Serve with ice cream and enjoy.
