The Best Chocolate Cookie Recipe

Gooey Chocolate Cookie

I used a Hugh F-W recipe as the base for these gorgeous cookies. I fiddled and changed a few of the ingredients but the end result was melt in the mouth cookies - just how we like them. You could add some dried cranberries or sour cherries to the mix if you wanted, just a handful.


| Serves: MAKES 15 COOKIES  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes | Total Time: 20 Minutes |


  • 100g Dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 125g Butter, melted
  • 100g Granulated Sugar
  • 75g Light Muscavado Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1TSP Vanilla Extract
  • 150g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 TSP Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt


  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 190C/170C Fan. Line two baking trays.
  • Step 2: Measure the sugars into a large mixing bowl, beat in the egg then stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract.
  • Step 3: Sieve in the flour and baking powder and add a pinch of salt and mix thoroughly. Stir through the chocolate at the end.
  • Step 4: Place dessert spoon dollops onto the baking sheets - spaced well apart. Cook for 8-10 minutes. Leave to set for a couple of minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool - best eaten warm.

  1. ooooo delish! Hope you are not too tired after your long day yest - your tweets were so funny! Lucie x

  2. The cookie in the photo is so regular I thought it was sliced from a roll. How do you make drop cookies look so good?

  3. Yep they do look GOOD!

  4. Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.

  6. Suelle - they didn't all look like that - but I like the fact homemade cookies are all slighty different shapes

  7. what a delightful recipe! I must try it!

  8. These look yummy. Are they the crisp chewy kind or the soft kind?

  9. Katie - they are really chewy, melt in the mouth kind. Very moreish. It's a great recipe as you can adapt to add fruit. nuts etc

  10. They look PERFECT! I'll take a few with some ice cold milk... please?

  11. Beautiful cookies. I would do anything for one right now!


  12. Beth, these cookies look yummy!

  15. Bet they didn't last long Beth! They look fab, I love melt int he mouth cookies rather than the crunchy numbers so I'll be keeping this recipe in mind.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
