Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Who doesn’t love themselves a gooey, chocolate cookie? This recipe is just so great, I have made them so many times that I think I really have perfected them. The original recipe that I adapted them from used just plain milk chocolate chips, but I like to use broken up blocks of chocolate so that you get actual chunks of chocolate, and I also like to include a mixture of dark, milk and white chocolate. I think my key tip is to not over-beat the butter and sugar mixture, and also to make sure that the butter really is room temperature – don’t pull it out of the fridge moments before use and expect that sticking it in the microwave for a few minutes will do the trick!


  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 125 butter (room temperature)
  • 3/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 t vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c chocolate


  1. 200°C bake.
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. Separately, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla (but not too much!).
  4. Add the egg.
  5. Add the flour mixture.
  6. Stir in the chocolate.
  7. Spoon balls onto a greased tray (or baking paper) and flatten slightly.
  8. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes, or until appropriately gooey!
A happy camper!
