Chocolate Cookie Fruit Crumble – crumble meets chocolate cookies! (finally!)
You’re gonna LOVE this dessert. Both the fruit and the cookie dough can come straight out of the freezer, for a yummy treat that takes no time or effort at all.
This Chocolate Cookie Fruit Crumble recipe is a twist on the classic summer crumble that combines all of my favorite berries and bakes them until warm and bubbly under a double chocolate chip cookie topping!
I used frozen ready to bake Millie’s Cookies from Iceland for the topping, though you could use homemade cookie dough too. One of my favourite things to do is to make a big batch of cookie dough and stash some cookie dough balls away in the freezer for later (see how).
Four kinds of berries are topped with chocolate chip cookie dough and baked…. tart berries, sweet melty chocolate. The only thing that could possibly improve this is vanilla ice cream…. so let’s add that too.
It’s the perfect recipe to have up your sleeve for the evenings when people are coming over to eat and you want to make them something for dessert but you don’t have a lot of time. At my house, there’s always dessert.
A few weeks ago my lovely workmate Stephanie mentioned to me that Iceland had started selling frozen Millie’s Cookies that you bake at home (being a cookie fan she KNEW I would want to know about this!).
Later that day, I got an email from Iceland asking me if I wanted to be part of their latest campaign all about the power of frozen foods!! I thought it was a great fit for me because I LOVE my freezer. We have a big chest freezer and also a good sized one in our Smeg! Being veggie and having no car means it’s so helpful to be able to stock up on food.
I love making big batches of veggie chilli to stow away too – it’s so handy to be able to pull a good meal out of the freezer. AND I also get my breakfast out of my freezer…
I make a giant batch of my oat breakfast muffins, which have banana (and you can add other fruits too – I often pop in blueberries), peanut butter, oats, nuts (and just a teeeeny bit of chocolate). I freeze them, then each evening I take two out to defrost overnight. The next morning at my desk, I can have a delicious homemade breakfast with zero effort from me!
(nerdy interjection – I LOVE the jumbo sandwich bags from Ikea for storing these in my freezer)
Do you ever shop in Iceland? I have to confess with until they got in touch, I didn’t. I popped in to get some inspiration on what to make for you, and ended up buying LOADS! The sourdough frozen veggie pizzas looked delish (I will report back), and they also have an amazing section filled with breads for you to bake at home, plus croissants, pain au chocolat and that type of thing.
I got some cinnamon raisin bread, corn bread, ciabattas and some rolls. The ingredients are not weird at all, and the bread LOOKS like something from an amazing bakery. Perfect for when you have friends over for food or to stay.
- 500g bag frozen berries (or use fresh)
- 6 frozen chocolate Millie's cookies
- Preheat your oven to 180C/160 fan and fill the bottom of a large ceramic dish or pan with the berries. Next, remove your cookies from their packaging and arrange on top of the fruit.
- Pop into the oven, and after about five minutes, remove from the oven and use a spoon to spread the warm cookie dough over the fruit evenly.
- Bake for 25-35 minutes on the middle shelf of the oven, taking care not to let the cookies burn.
- Serve warm with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream.
I also had a go at baking up some of the Millie’s Cookies by themselves…. they really do taste just like the real thing!
I know you’re going to love this! If you do make it tag me @kerryedwards on Instagram so I can see your bakes!
How do you make the best use of your freezer? Any tips to share that I haven’t thought of?
