Ultimate Chocolate Cookies

Preparation Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins


250g unsalted butter, softened
220g caster sugar
220g brown sugar
2 eggs
100g dark chocolate, melted
80g cocoa powder, sifted
250g plain flour
1 ½ tsp baking soda
400g dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 150°C and line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.

Place butter, caster sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until the mixture is pale and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, until combined. Drizzle in the melted chocolate and mix to incorporate. Add cocoa, flour, baking soda and beat until combined. Set aside some chocolate chips for sprinkling on top then add the remaining to the batter and mix until just combined.

Form the dough into 24 even-sized balls and place onto baking trays, allowing room for them to spread when they bake. Sprinkle the tops with reserved chocolate chips, pressing them down slightly to adhere. Bake for 10 mins, then allow the cookies to cool completely on the trays before removing.
