  • 150 grams chocolate 50-50 mix milk and dark chocoalte
  • 113 grams butter
  • 125 grams white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg large
  • ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 160 grams flour


  • Preheat the oven to 190°C/375F, or 170°C fans forced. Line two baking sheets with baking paper or silicon mats. If using chocolate bars, chop the chocolate using a chef's or santoku knife.
  • Partially cream the softened (but not melted) butter in a large mixing bowl using a spoon.
    113 grams butter
  • Add in the sugar and cream by hand using a spoon or whisk for 2 to 3 minutes.
    125 grams white sugar
  • Add in the egg and vanilla. Beat together with a spoon or whisk until well combined, this will take about 2 to 3 minutes.
    1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 egg
  • Add in the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix through until most of the flour has been mixed into the wet ingredients.
    ½ teaspoons baking soda, ¼ teaspoon salt, 160 grams flour
  • Toss in the chocolate and mix through. Then knead the biscuit dough by hand a few times to make sure all the ingredients are well combined.
    150 grams chocolate
  • Using a cookie or ice cream scoop, scoop out portions of cookies and place them on the baking sheet about 3 inches or 7cm apart. Alternatively, roll out balls of dough about 3cm or just over an inch in diameter. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet before lifting them onto a cooling rack to cool completely.


For this recipe, I recommend using your favourite eating chocolate. I like using a 50-50 mix of creamy milk (33% cocoa) and 50% cocoa dark chocolate (semi-sweet chocolate). 
I bake 3 to 4 cookies on a sheet about 9"x13" big. 


These cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
The cookie dough can be frozen in individual portions and baked off when the need for a warm cookie strikes. To bake from frozen, preheat the oven to 190°C/375F, and bake for 10-15 minutes.
