Soft chocolate cookies

These chocolate cookies are not for the aesthetically-minded but they’re easy and fun to make with kids.


Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170C/345F/Gas 3½. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking parchment.

  2. Place the butter and chopped dark chocolate in a bowl suspended over a pan of simmering water (do not let the bowl touch the water). When melted, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

  3. Place the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and whisk with a handheld electric mixer and until creamy.

  4. Beat in the melted chocolate and butter mixture, then beat in the flour, salt and baking powder.

  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  6. Use a tablespoon to place small heaps of the mixture on the lined baking tray at least 5cm/2in apart. Bake each tray for 10-15 minutes until the cookies are still soft in the centre but set around the edge.

  7. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
