  • 175g butter, softened



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 85g golden caster sugar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 100g chocolate chips, milk or dark


  1. Mix the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon. Stir in the flour and cocoa, followed by the chocolate chips – you’ll probably need to mix it together with your hands at this stage. Halve the dough and roll each piece into a log about 5cm thick. Wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hr or for several days. Can be frozen for up to 1 month.

  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Slice logs into 1cm-thick rounds, transfer to a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 10-12 mins. Cool on the tray.

Very easy and very nice! Convenient to split the dough in half and keep a bit to have fresh cookies later! Lovely dipped in milk. Only 4 stars because I found the dough a bit sandy...

Easy peasy and delicious, my daughter had a friend come around on a playdate and I realised I had nothing to offer for a treat and these were rustled up using some chocolate buttons and store cupboard ingredients. Yummy with a glass of milk :)

Absolutely delicious - made these with white choc chips as I didn't have any milk or dark choc chips. So easy and totally divine.

Amazing - big hit with the children & adults!! Even though only cocoa powder really chocolately! Very easy to make - I didn't bother creaming the butter & sugar first - just chucked everything except the choc chips in the kenwood and let it do the work! Added the choc chips at the end for a quick mix and hey presto! Keep very well - if they last that long!! Don't know if the mixture will make it to the freezer.
