Double Chocolate Cookies

Cookie heaven. Dreamy double chocolate cookies that are chewy and incredible dunked in milk. Make them and put a smile on someones face.

Makes approx 20 cookies


200g milk chocolate

120g butter

240g caster sugar

1 large egg – beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

220g plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda


Pre heat oven to 200c / 180c fan

Line 3 baking trays. For best results cook each tray separately in the centre of oven so you can keep re-lining the same tray if you wish.

Beat together your butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a large mixing bowl.

Beat in your beaten egg bit by bit and then your vanilla.

In another large bowl sift your flour, baking powder , bicarb and cocoa. Gently fold into your butter mixture along with your snapped up chocolate pieces.

When you have a doughy mixture divide in half, roll into two balls and cling film. Pop in the fridge for around half hour to an hour.

Split the dough between your 3 trays and roll into golf ball sized mounds. Pop in the centre of the oven for approx 10 minutes. The cookies will spread so space at least 2 inches apart.

Allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray as they’ll still be cooking a little when they come out the oven. Best not to overcook them as they won’t be so gooey and delicious.

Transfer onto a wire baking rack to cool a little and serve slightly warm with a glass of ice cold milk.
