  • 225g unsalted butter, softened
  • 200g granulated sugar
  • 200g light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 5ml vanilla extract
  • 400g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 200g chocolate chips
  • 1x Tin of Gardiners Golden Ginger Fudge!


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 190°C, and lining a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a bowl cream together your butter and sugar until well combined.
  3. Add your eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl, sieve your flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix until combined.
  5. Next, you’re going to fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and keep mixing until you get the perfect cookie dough consistency.
  6. If you’d like to, you can add chocolate chips at this stage (we highly recommend you do).
  7. Now the fun part – form cookie dough balls, and hide a square of #meltinglydelicious golden ginger fudge in each. (Chefs privileges mean you get to have a piece of fudge, or two, at this stage)
  8. Pop your cookies in the preheated and bake for 9-11 minutes or until they are crisp on the outside and gooey in the middle.
  9. This is where we exercise our will power and let the cookies cool completely.
  10. This step is by far the easiest – just serve and enjoy your golden ginger fudge cookies.
