• 200g butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 100g white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 170°C (fan assisted). Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Using an electric beater cream the butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg.*
  3. Sift in the flour and baking powder with the chopped white and dark chocolate.
  4. Roll into balls and place on baking trays, flattening a little with your hand. Leave room between each one to spread.
  5. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and stand for 5 minutes on the trays before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool. When cold, store in an airtight container.

Top Tips

  • *If you don’t have an electric beater, this can be done by hand using a wooden spoon.
  • For gooey chocolate and to enjoy them warm, microwave the cookies for approximately 10 seconds.

Swap it out

  • If wished replace the white chocolate with milk chocolate or just use 200g of dark chocolate.

Switch it up

  • Add ½ cup chopped toasted macadamia nuts or hazelnuts with the chocolate.

Best recipe for chocolate chip cookies I've come across - the brown sugar definitely makes a difference! I usually just use a whole block of Whittakers dairy milk in my batches.

Hmmm.....baked for 22 mins at 160 fan forced but they didn't brown up well and stayed quite soft as opposed to crispy, but disappointed. Maybe I did something wrong? I did use flora buttery instead of butter, could that be it?

Reply from Food in a Minute Team

Hi Peta, thanks for your query. Flora butter will give a different texture so we would recommend using butter for best results. You may also want to increase oven temperature to 180 degrees. Hope this helps.

How will they turn out without the egg please??

Reply from The Food in a Minute team

Hi Leah,

Thank you for your query and apologies for the delayed response. We haven’t tested them without egg as the mixture would be drier and the biscuits would not be as tender. But they probably would work without the egg, the texture would be different and you may need to add a little milk to make the dough soft enough to roll.

Hope this helps!

Hiya, am I able to make these without the brown sugar and use caster instead? I've run out :(. Amazing recipe by the way. have made once before and they were the best!

Reply from The Food in a Minute Team

Hi Rachel,

Yes, you can substitute the brown sugar with the same quantity of caster sugar if you want :).
