Big, fat, chewy choc chip cookies - great recipe!

This is an amazing cookie recipe, you want the sort of cookies that stay soft and chewy in the middle? Well these are for you! 


250g Plain flour
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp Salt
170g Unsalted butter (Melted)
200g Dark Brown Soft Sugar
100g Caster sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
1 Egg
1 Egg yolk
325g Choc chips or roughly broken chocolate (I use a mix of milk & white)

I use quite big chunks of roughly chopped chocolate


1. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees C/gas mark 3. Grease baking trays and lightly dust with flour, or line with baking parchment. 

2. Sift together flour, bicarb of soda and salt and put aside till later. 

3. Cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until the mixture becomes light and creamy. 

4. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended, don't over mix the mixture. Either use chocolate chips or roughly chopped chocolate if you want bigger chunks (I use a mixture of milk and white chocolate chunks for variety). Mix these into the cookie mixture by hand using a wooden spoon and ensure even distribution.

5. Drop cookie dough onto the baking trays, I usually put a decent sized dollop per cookie. Don't flatten the mixture and make sure they are spread apart as they spread while cooking. 

6. Bake for 15 or so minutes in the pre-heated oven (times are dependent on your oven) or until the edges are just lightly golden. 

7. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes until transferring to a wire cooling rack.

8. Once cool, serve and enjoy!!!

I have experimented with a lot of cookie recipes and this is definitely the best I've tried, I've jiggled it about a bit using big chocolate chunks and cooking for slightly less time so they stay chewy. I've had lots of positive comments about how yummy they are and that they stay chewy in the middle. Definitely worth a try and relatively quick to make, they also taste delicious!

  1. Made these not long ago!

    Recipe easy to follow and didn't take long!

    Absolutely yummy! Only tip is you may want to cook for slightly less time depending on your oven to make them softer. I didn't have enough chocolate so added raisins!


    1. Thanks Sarah! Great tip, raisins are a yummy extra, will try that out myself next time. XX
