These cookies are fabulous, and freeze really well, either unbaked or baked.

I quite often make up a whole batch and form all 12 cookies, then freeze half of them unbaked. I then freeze 3 of the baked cookies when the've cooled from the oven.

I don't feel like I have to eat all of them then!!


  • 125g dark, dark, dark chocolate (the darkest you can get!!)
  • 150g plain flour
  • 30g cocoa, sieved
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 125g soft butter
  • 75g light brown sugar
  • 50g white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, cold from the fridge
  • 350g dark chocolate chips (or sometimes i just chop up a chocolate bar or two!!)


  • Preheat oven to 170c (340f) and melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a heat proof dish over a pan of simmering water.
  • Put the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl.
  • In another bowl, cream the butter and sugars together, add the melted chocolate and mix together.
  • Beat in the vanilla extract and cold egg, then mix in the dry ingredients.
  • Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop out 12 equal sized mounds - I use an ice cream scoop for this - and place on a lined baking sheet about 6cm apart. Do not flatten them.
  • Cook for 18 mins, testing with a cake tester to make sure it ocomes out semi-clean and not wet with cake batter.
  • Leave to cool (if you can resist!!) on a wire rack.
