Also I got 18 out of the mix but I made them pretty huge!

I was out of eggs when i made this so I used this substitute: 2 tbsp water, 1 tsp oil (I used sunflower) and 2 tsp baking powder per egg. They turned out delicious and very chocolatey. I used chocolate chunks instead of chips and I included white and milk as well as dark. I love them so much!

I just made these and they turned out really well! They taste great and are exactly what I was looking to bake I highly recommend this recipe!

Very cakey and crumbly, made a bit more than 30. Not exactly what I was looking to make but people seem to like them...

I made these for a birthday and great turnout! Everyone loved them! I definitely recommend these cookies! Thanks :-)

Nice taste but the mixture became incredibly thick and I had to roll the dough by hand to make individual cookies (I may have over-mixed at the egg stage). I added chopped almonds and milk/white chocolate chips.

Great recipe. Just what I have been looking for - for ages! So easy the kids can make them virtually unsupervised. No faffing around with putting the dough in the fridge, so they can be made and eaten in quick time.

This recipe is great. My friends like me making them. I currently also get 30-35 cookies from this recipe too! I cook mine for about 10 mins at the moment and use a 100g white chocolate bar and 100g of milk choc cut instead of chips. I cut the bars into little squares as I find aldi/sainsbury cheap chocolate is fine and cheaper than chocolate chips. I get a normal dessert eating spoon to dollop the mixture on a tray, then make sure I pat it out into nice circles. This gets a homemade but still quite uniform cookie. I have lessened the amount per a dollop of spoon as I used to get about 20 cookies but realised a smaller amount can still make the same width if you pat them. Then you get more for you ingredients too which keeps everyone happy. Hope this helps. If eaten while hardened but still recently made you should get some nice melted chocolate in the cookie to bite into and make a mess with too! Happy making... And very importantly, happy munching!

A lot of comments say that these cookies were 'too cake like' and I would have to agree. they were crumbling and falling a part and to be honest- not the tastiest. Self-raising flour should be left to cakes, I think... Plain flour would have been best.

I do them for ten to twelve minutes and only used a normal eating dessert spoon from my draw to dollop a cookie on a tray. I then pat the dough down in to a nice round shape. I now get 30-35 from this recipe, about 9 on my tray at a time. (I only have one tray). I do them between 10-12 mins. They come out perfectly and everyone says I make good cookies but I really just followed this recipe.

How long does this take to make

Has anyone tried making this dough ahead of time and storing it in the fridge until it's needed? Thanks in advance :-)

Can you use margarine (e.g. Stork) to make these or does it need to be butter?
7th May, 2015
You can use stork, enjoy!!!! X

If you want to double the mix I would go for; 400g butter 550g sugar 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 3 eggs 600g flour any type 110g cocoa powder 1tsp baking powder 450g choc chips Thanks :-)

I just finished making this recipe, my cookies turned out exceptionally well I would like to point out that it is better if you use regular flour like that it is less like a cake texture. I definitely recommend this recipe for chocolate lovers, as I used regular flour the texture was more hard and crunchy inside. I would definitely would make this again.

I made these today. I used plain flour instead of self raising as I didn't want a crumbly cookie. I wanted them not to fall apart which I thought may happen if they had more cake like texture. They are so yummy! Crunchy outside goofy inside! Perfect. I used Cadbury coca rather than supermarket branded. Battery is no way rollable so I just scupt out balls with a spoon. They still grew outwards loads we got about 25 large cookies

Chocolate chip alternative: ~ If you want to save some money, buying cheap chocolate bars and cutting them up into chunks works just as well as chocolate chips. Also you might find chunks of chocolate more appealing. ~ I use 100g white chocolate and 100g milk chocolate instead of chocolate chips. White chocolate looks good in them. Chocolate powder: ~ If you think 80g is alot to use of your beloved green and blacks etc, using 50g still works fine. Milk: ~ You can add a tablespoon or two of milk if you think it looks dry, however, in my experience if it looks a bit crumbly like the texture of old fashioned rusk mixture, they still come out fine. Batch amount: ~ If you use a dessert spoon you can use a relatively small amount and pat the mixture out to circles. I currently can get between 30-35 cookies from this recipe on BBC good food. I originally began with managing about 20. Long as the width is like you would normally do, a smaller height, from patting, does not matter too much to the final cooked cookie size. You'll manage to do trial and error and get a decent cookie size and decent batch of 30+ eventually, I am sure!

Instead of 80g of coco powder you can use 100g of dark chocolate. Melt it in the microwave with a little bit of butter and add in before the flour mix. Make a way chocolatiery (not a word) cookie!
