2 In a bowl, beat the cooking oil and sugar together. Add the golden syrup, peanut butter and vanilla extract to the same bowl and mix in well. Add in flour, cocoa and peanuts and mix well, forming a soft sticky cookie dough.

3 Take a spoonful of the mixture, shape into a ball about the size of a walnut and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.

4 Repeat the process until all the mixture has been used, making sure to space them well apart and using more than one baking sheet if necessary.
