Fantastic recipe, have made these using m&m's, smarties, maltesers and a mixture. Only problem is they don't last long in our house!

I also halved the recipe as i was worried they might not turn out nice! How wrong i was!!! Beautiful, if you can wait and leave them to cool properly, they taste even better. Plus very easy to make. Will definitely make them again.

Delicious! I halved the recipe and ended up with 12 decent sized chunky cookies, the only mistake I made was leaving them in for a couple of minutes longer as they didn't look done enough so they were a bit dry around the edges. Next time I will flatten them a bit before putting in the oven and will take them out after 12 minutes as per the recipe.

These went down well with everyone. I used 100g of chocolate chips which seemed to be just the right amount.

I halved the recipe and still got over 10 cookies! Used choc m&ms and tiny pieces of fudge for real indulgence...went down a treat with our guests!

Whoops!! .. forgot to rate .. Definitely a 5 * recipe - and would award more if I was able to!

The only deviation from the recipe that I made was to use a bar of milk chocolate chopped up into random sized chunks. SERIOUSLY GOOD COOKIES!! .. easily the best cookie recipe I have found and one I will use time and again. The family loved them. Perfect, yummy cookies. All other cookie recipes will be going in the bin!!
Thanks Carol !!

Another great recipe. They disappear very quickly when the family are around.

i'm thinking of making these because they sound delicious but overall, how long do they take to make?

I think I undercooked them slightly as my first batch fell apart! 2nd batch was better - needs the full 12 mins and more!

These are brilliant thanks. My husband likes them that much I think he might actually do the baking next time! Lovely recipe but I made 18 and they were still quite big!

These cookies were really delicious! I made half mixture; made 14 good size cookies, they were very popular and will definitely be made again.
