Gooey chocolate cookies and a hot drink…yum. These cookies are beautiful, soft and gooey while also slightly chewy. These melt in your mouth and have you taking more than one. This recipe is super easy to make and eat, a definite family favourite. Recipe beautifully created by Donna Hay, thanks xx


  • 120g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 110g unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (130g) brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes
  • 280g dark chocolate, extra, chopped roughly


Preheat the oven to 160°C. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside. 

Place the butter and sugar in an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. 

Stir through the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda, salt and melted chocolate. Add the extra chopped chocolate and stir to combine. 

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into rounds and place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper, allowing room to spread. Flatten each round slightly. Bake for 10−12 minutes or until slight cracks have formed and cookies are just crispy. Cool on wire racks. Makes 16
