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.

Just made these with gluten free, self raising flour. They are amazing.

Fantastic recipe, cooking time spot on! Nice and soft centre, tast delicious. I used 150g white choclate and 150g milk chocolate chopped into small chunks, worked a treat, would recommend over the chocolate chips. Work slightly better with slighlty more than a tablespoon of dough as well.

These were amazing, forgot to add baking powder, but were still great :)

These are delicious! I've made two batches now, my kids and husband love do I :) Make sure you get them out of the oven after 12 minutes as stated, any longer and they'll go quite hard and won't taste quite as good. 12 minutes, and they're are lovely and soft in the middle, and so chocolately!!
