Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line 1-2 baking sheets with baking parchment. Mix the sugars and butter together with a wooden spoon, then add the egg, vanilla, flour and half the melted milk chocolate and mix together. Stir in the white and plain chocolate chips or chunks, then use an ice-cream scoop or round tablespoon (like a measuring spoon) to scoop out balls of cookie dough and drop them straight onto the trays.
  2. Bake in batches for 8-9 mins until pale golden and still soft to touch – they will firm up as they cool. Carefully transfer to a wire rack as soon as they can be lifted up, then drizzle with the remaining melted chocolate.

Totally fantastic! Couldn't stop eating: first the dough and later the ready ones! :)

Wow these were so yummy, made them as a little anniversary gift for my boyfriend but he only got half them because I couldn't stop eating them all. I only had Demerara sugar and it worked really well, they reminded me of Pizza Hut cookie dough!!

Excellent recipe made with my 7 year old daughter but she could have easily done on her own, may try reducing the sugar content next time and try adding nuts etc. Overall very good cookie recipe which I will definitely be using again. 8 mins in fan assisted oven is sufficient.

A really easy recipe that can be varied according to what you have in or what you fancy. Today I added 85g of chopped walnuts instead of the chocolate chips and they are lovely - you could of course add the nuts and chocolate chips! I also added all of the melted chocolate to the mix as I find this gives a better consistency. You could drizzle extra on top but I don't think it needs it. Putting the baking trays in the fridge for 15 - 20 minutes before baking helps to prevent them from spreading giving a perfect shape and thickness although you may need to add a couple of minutes extra cooking time.

Nice but intensely sweet and not quite enough depth of chocolate flavour. I would add some cocoa or use melted dark chocolate in the base and reduced the sugar by around a third

Make these regularly, this week my daughters aged 8 & 10 made them unaided. However we don't add melted chocolate but chop chocolate into chunks and add them, delicious. Today made using basic dough and added smarties halfway through cooking (so they don't burn). All ready to eat whilst watching Dr Who finale - double treat.

I thought this was a good and easy recipe. However there could be not so many as I had to share them with both my friends and family!

FAB.... made these with my 3 year old - didnt put in plain choc as only had white so used all white choc chips. Also i put all the melted choc in the mix rather than half as stated as the mixture seeed really dry. Also added the 1/2 tsp bicarb as someone else had suggested and they turned out amaxing. Very sweet but thats ok with me!

I love these cookies! They taste stunning, are fast and always go down a treat when ever I need to bake something for people without hours of preparation. I highly, 100% recommend these to anybody who's a chocoholic or just genuinely wants to bake amazing cookies!!!

Just cooked these and I understand what people mean by them being so sweet but clearly if you wanted something sweet then this is the sugar hit for you! These cookies turned out fantastic. After reading the comments before I was slightly put off especially as I'm not the most confident baker but they turned out great! I took up on someones advice of putting in some baking powder. Yummers!

I made these cookies for a school project and LOVED them! Everybody in class thought they were the best. This is great for anything.

made these as a study snack - substituted 80g hazelnuts for plain chocolate and added melted dark choc for the choc drizzle. absolutely scrummy, needless to say there were none left by the morning!

A bit too gloopy, they all melted in together and formed one giant square "cookie". Very sweet and not as tasty as I was expecting.

I accidentally added all of the melted milk chocolate rather than half, and they were IMMENSE. Have made them a few times since and always add all of the melted chocolate. Once I half baked them and served with ice cream. Words can't describe the pleasure

scbpiper's picture

I've made these quite a few times but with some alterations.
I melt Dark mint chocolate (e.g. Lindt Mint Intense or you could use dark chocolate and 1 tsp of mint essence) and I use the full 140g ish to combine into the biscuit mix. I leave out the vanilla essence. I then use the rest of 60g of mint chocolate and add some milk/dark/white chunks or chips (whatever I have). It is true that the chunks don't combine well but with the extra melted chocolate the dough is more stiff and really easy to make into balls with your hands. I press them down a little and bake for 10min in my fan oven. I don't both with the extra chocolate on top. They're really great with coffee instead of after dinner chocolates and just a little bit more grown up.

I thought they where really good, not to sweet! I recommend adding a couple of table spoons of peanut butter chunky or smooth works well, it adds something else to them
and use bread flour to make them a bit more chewier! and cookie like
