  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g plain flour
  • 140g milk chocolate, melted
  • 85g white chocolate, chips or chopped into chunks
  • 85g plain chocolate, chips or chopped into chunks


  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.

So indulgent! But oh so yummy, if you've got a sweet tooth like yours truly. I can understand some people thinking they're too sweet, but I think they're perfect. Triple chocolate, what's not to like?!! My boyfriend and I often make them on lazy sunday afternoons, they make the house smell delicious!

The best cookie recipe ever!! I have shared it with most of my friends, who have loved it so much they've shared it with their friends. The crisp outside and gooey chocolatey inside is heavenly. Get baking :-)

don't know what all the fuss is about, these are great ! The kids love making them, especially the choc drizzling (funny how there is always some left over for them to finish off !) And as for eating them, they don't last long ! so enough said.

These are the best chocolate cookies I have ever made and they were soon eaten up!! They are very easy to make. I left over too much chocolate to drizzle over which spoilt them a bit, so next time I will melt some extra chocolate after the cookies are cooked.

Have just made these cookies for my son to take to uni - good ice breaker! I am very impressed, they really have the goo factor. I used slightly less melted chocolate in the mixture as I noticed the comments about them being sweet and didn't put the melted chocolate on top and they are excellent, will definitely be using this recipe again.

I made these without the milk chocolate as most people were saying it was too rich or sweet and they were PERFECT. I added a bit too many chocolate chips though *whoops*! Will try them with the melted chocolate and will let you know :D

Absolutely foolproof, easy to make cookies! Ended up making them twice in a week as they disappeared so quickly. Have made lots of different cookie recipes and these are by far the easiest with great results! I whizz everything up in a food processor, then stir in the chocolate chunks - have found it better to chop the chocolate up quite small as it makes scooping the dough out easier.

these cookies are delicious, I definitely think they are better than shop bought cookies! have made them several times now and just miss out drizzling the melted chocolate at the end and put smarties on instead just after they come out of the oven. delicious.

Make these cookies every week, easy to do, taste scrummy. I do add 1/2 tsp baking powder to the recipe, which stops them from spreading too much.

I'm not that impressed with these, they were too sweet and quite bland. They might have been better using dark chocolate rather than melted milk in the dough. Not a recipe I'll be repeating, there are many better ones out there.

Followed this recipe as is and was very disappointed, found the cookies exceptionally sweet & a bit tastesless and for all the chocolate thats in them too!

Oh also - wasn't able to scoop these out easily with a spoon because of all the chocolate chunks falling off/getting in the way - instead just used my hands to create little balls of the dough which was much easier.

Wonderful delicious yummy cookies. Not too sure why everyone here has rated them so low because I fed them to several highly approving people, several of whom asked me for the recipe, and two who commented that these were better than those bought from cookie shops, and that I could sell them! These are proper, crunchy-outside-chewy-inside, American-style cookies. I used the leftover dark and white chocolate to drizzle over the top instead of using milk chocolate. Definitely worth giving this recipe a try.

Not great. Too much chocolate made them melt all over the baking tray and not enough substance. Also too sweet.

Just wanted to add a comment now it is possible to do so again, these are ok, but nothing special and a little too buttery for me, there are much better recipes to be had.
