Servings 26 cookies*


  • Stand or hand mixer
  • Whisk
  • Spatula
  • Baking tray (silicone best for most even baking)


  • 200 g plain flour
  • 60 g cocoa powder sifted
  • 2 tsp cornflour level
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda level
  • 1/4 tsp salt level
  • 220 g butter Spreadable butter (not block butter), softened to room temperature. I use Flora Buttery
  • 140 g light brown sugar/light muscovado sugar if using light muscovado sugar, sift to remove lumps
  • 70 g caster sugar
  • 2 egg yolks room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g dark chocolate chips You can use milk chocolate chips instead if you prefer (though I find dark chocolate chips give the cookies a deeper chocolate flavour)
  • 80 g white chocolate chips keep the extra 20g from each bag of chocolate chips to press into the warm cookies once out of the oven - this is mainly for appearance though so optional!


  • Preheat oven to 180°/160° fan.
  • If you're not using a silicon baking tray, line your baking tray with baking/parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl whisk the plain flour, cocoa powder, cornflour, bicarbonate of soda and salt until combined. Set aside.
  • Using the bowl of your stand mixer (fitted with paddle attachment) or a large bowl if using an electric hand whisk, beat the butter and both sugars on medium speed for 1 whole minute until light and fluffy.
  • Add both egg yolks and vanilla extract to this bowl and beat on medium speed for around 20 seconds until combined.
  • Add half the dry ingredients to this bowl and beat on low speed until just combined. Add the remaining half and beat again on low speed until just combined.
  • Add the dark and white chocolate chips to the bowl and beat on low until just combined.
  • Measure out two level tablespoons of dough per cookie - press the two tablespoons of dough together, roll into a ball in your hands and place on your baking tray. I bake 6-7 cookies per tray to allow space for the cookies to spread slightly.
  • Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, turning the tray halfway through if your oven has a hot spot so that they bake evenly.
  • Once out of the oven, place the baking tray on your countertop and leave the cookies on the tray for a further 5 minutes - they will continue baking on the hot tray.
  • While they're still warm, use the remaining chocolate chips from your two bags of chips to press 3-4 gently onto each cookie. This is mainly for appearance but I think it makes such a difference!
  • After 5 minutes, remove the cookies from the baking tray using a spatula and place on a wire cooling rack. Do this carefully as the cookies will still be slightly soft.
  • Once completely cool, store in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Best eaten within 2-3 days. They freeze really well too! Individually wrap each cookie so you can grab one as a quick snack.
