- 125 g (½ cup / 4.5 oz) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 heaped cup (200 g / 7 oz) dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus extra to decorate
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (355°F). Grease and line two large baking trays with baking paper.
- In the large bowl of an electric stand mixer (or using a hand mixer), cream together butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add egg and beat until well combined. Add vanilla and beat until well combined.
- Sift over plain flour, baking soda and cocoa powder. Stir together until a soft dough forms. Add chocolate chips and mix until well combined.
- Roll 1 big tablespoon of dough into a ball and place onto the prepared tray. Flatten slightly. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving a 3 cm (1 inch) gap between the cookies to allow for spreading. Stud extra chocolate chips into the top of each cookie, if desired.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through and edges are browned. Allow to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- You can keep cookies un-refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
- To freeze the uncooked cookie dough, wrap tightly in clingwrap and place in a zip-loc or freezer bag. Keep for up to 6 months frozen. To thaw, allow to defrost at room temperature for 6 hours or overnight and bake as normal.
- You can replace 1 heaped cup of dark chocolate chips with milk or white chocolate chips (or a combination). You can also use chopped chocolate blocks.
