Chocolate Cookies

1 Nov


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).


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


1) Preheat the oven to 180C.

2) Cream the butter and sugar together.



3) Beat in the egg.


4) Sift in the flour, and fold into the mixture.



5) Break the chocolate into chunks and add it to the mixture.


6) Shape the cookies on a greased baking tray. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes, until golden.


7) Try not to eat them all at once!
