Chewy Choc Chip Cookies - Baking with hubby!

It has been a long time since I have actually taken the time to bake something. So today I promised my hubby we would bake cookies together. Or rather I would bake while he stood around waiting for them to be ready to eat!! Cookies are pretty quick & easy to make, and very yummy to eat. I love cookies that are crispy on the outside & chewy on the inside, I don't like when they are hard like biscuits. So after trying a few recipes over the years, this is the one I love and use. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients (Makes approximately 18 cookies)
Each cookie is approximately 310 calories
  • 250g Plain flour
  • 200g light brown soft sugar
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 170g unsalted butter (must be soft or melted)
  • 2 eggs - 1 whole egg & yolk only of second egg
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 360g of chocolate chips or chunks
Hubby & I chose dairy milk as it's our favourite. But by all means use galaxy, chocolate chips, smarties, mini eggs, fruit, what ever you want really! If using a bar break the chocolate in to individual squares.


  1. Preheat your oven to 170C/Gas mark 3 or 150C for a fan oven.
  2. Sift your flour, salt & Bicarbonate of soda
  3. In a seperate bowl cream the two types of sugar & butter together until thoroughly mixed & fluffy.
  4. Add the vanilla extract, 1 egg & 1 egg yolk and beat until light & fluffy.
  5. Add the sifted ingredients and mix until blended. You should have a creamy but quite stiff dough.
  6. Add the chocolate and stir until mixed thoroughly.
  7. Take a baking tray and either grease with margerine/butter or line with greaseproof/baking paper.
  8. Spoon the mixture on to the tray, about 1-2 tablespoons of mixture per cookie. Leave plenty of space between each dollop and do not flatten the mixture. As it cooks the mixture will flatten out.
  9. Leave in the oven for 15-20 minutes, the cookies should be golden brown (more so on the edges) soft but not runny. 
  10. Serve hot with a dollop of ice-cream, or leave to cool & eat later.

Middle two are a little bit too close!

Starting to go golden brown but still uncooked in the middle, back in they go!


Even if I say so myself these were absolutely delicious! Give them a go and let me know what you thought!

Or do you have a better recipe for me to try? Chris & I love the large dairy milk chunks in our cookies, but what is your favourite chocolate/sweet to add?

As always, thanks for reading! xox
