People are whipping out their slow cookers to make giant chocolate chip cookies - and they look incredible.
Thankfully the recipe is extremely easy to nail, and you’ll have a whopping cookie to tuck into within hours.
All you need for the delicious-looking treat is butter, caster sugar, brown sugar, an egg, vanilla extract, plain flour, baking soda, chocolate chips and salt.
First you need to grease the slow cooker and add two strips of parchment paper to the bottom so the cookie doesn’t stick.
Then, beat the butter and sugars for about two minutes using an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
