Chocolate Cookies

Everyone loves chocolate cookies, and these are great because instead of chocolate chips I’ve used big chunks of chocolate which makes them taste really luxurious. It’s only a little recipe so it’s great for when you really fancy a few homemade cookies and the gorgeous smell of them baking, but don’t want hundreds of them that end up going stale because you can’t eat them all.

Tip: you could try these with a mixture of white, milk and dark chocolate for a delicious twist. They would also be great with a few teaspoons of cocoa powder added with the flour to make them extra chocolatey!

Makes: eight or nine large cookies, or more if you made them smaller.

Cost per cookie: this depends on how many cookies you make but if you made nine cookies it would work out as £0.13 per cookie (price based on Tesco Value ingredients).

Ingredients:

  • 225g plain flour
  • 125g butter
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 200g chocolate
