  • 100g brown sugar
  • 125g unsalted block butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 225g Self Raising Flour
  • 200g chocolate (any kind!)
  • 1/2 tsp salt


    1. Pre-heat oven to 200oc Place butter and sugar in large bowl and mix well
    2. add the egg and vanilla essence and mix again
    3. sieve in flour and salt to mix and combine well.
    4. Cut the chocolate, but not to finely and add. Mix together then roll balls of mixture to about 2cm by 2cm and place on a baking tray with baking parchment on. Be careful not to put the cookies too close together.
    5. Place in preheated oven for 7-10 minutes. Repeat until all cookies are cooked.
    6. I use different kinds of chocolate and add nuts. For double chocolate cookies simply replace 50g flour with 75g chocolate powder.

This is a fabulous recipe as it is. The balls don't need to be squished down if you prefer Crispy cookies that stay soft in the middle. They are definitely not your average dry cookies and they're fine as they are.

SUPER DUPER easy peasy cookies and I am not a good baker at all!!! TIP: You do need to roll them really as flat as your choice chips will allow if you want a squishy in the middle crusty on the outside type Millies result. I cook mine for about 10 mins just keep an eye on them and whip them out before they go too brown as I found that a nice creamy/golden colour delivers the best texture. Everyone I give these cookies to begs for the recipe, look no further this is COOKIE heaven. Another great recipe from this site. 10/10 :)

After the first batch didn't spread, I squished the next lot down and they were fine! I did half the mixture with choc chips and the other with Reeses Pieces-yum! Also I made the mixture into 12 balls so that they were bigger and baked for 8-10mins :)

Love them but they came out like cookie cakes. A bit dry around the outside. I only made 15 so I halved the mixture but put a whole egg in. I put mine in for about 10-15 minutes and they were golden brown around the edges. If you want good old fashioned chocolate chunk cookies, I don't recommend this recipe but if you want spongey cookies then I recommend these. I'm eating mine at home now and they cakey and sweet but YUMMY. Have fun cooking :P

Can I just say that this is the best cookie recipe I have used ever!! That isn't an exaggeration, these cookies are easy/quick to make, taste delicious, spread out into giant chewy, soft and crispy on the outside, and are very similar to Ben's/Millie's cookies. The time is true to the recipe but I recommend keeping a close eye on them because this type of cookie is incredibly easy to burn. I hope you don't mind, but I used this recipe for my food tech class, which not only got a 10 out of 10 stars from my teachers and friends, but were so delicious that I got an 'A' grade in food Tech. I have completely converted to this recipe, and I would highly recommend.

So glad I didn't read the comments first, it might have put me off trying these! The recipe was really easy (made with 2 year old daughter and wasn't nearly as stressful as expected!!!) they turned out exactly as expected from homemade cookies, which are always softer rather than crunchy, also left them round instead of flattened before baking, they do spread a bit n didn't stay as dough balls like others have said. Definitely making these again. Thank you x

Really really nice! Got finished within minutes:-) I cooked them for 20 mins n not 10. Also, I made small bitesize :-)

Definitely not a cookie more of a Choc chip mini cake, I thought the mixture was more cake like too! I don't think we will be using this recipe again! Not what we expected.

It is a cakey recipe but I love it. Each to their own :-)

Tasty enough but not a cookie. These cookies don't spread and are like little cakes. I wonder if the recipe should use plain instead of self raising flour? These were not right.

I think this recipe is incorrect. There are 2 entries for 1/2 tsp salt. Should the other be 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda?

Super recipe though not like Millie's and they do need pressing down otherwise they bulge. Great flavour though x

I only used 1 and it turned out fine

Really tasty, substituted some of the flour for cocoa powder, they did not spread out, so pressing them down is a must

I found that you had to flatten these rather a lot! I made mine more of a 5cm in diameter, they turned out beautiful. Also, I put the dough into cling film and rolled into a sausage, sliced into 1cm discs then shaped.... makes life a bit easier!! Hope this helps!

Because the cookies don't spread much, take them out after 7 mins and flatten them with an oven glove and put them back in for the remaining time

Don't use an electronic mixture, and also only using 90g of sugar

use less salt
