Chocolate chunk brownie biscuits
  • Meal Type


Although best eaten warm off the tray, these can be stored in a container – but beware, you may not be able to wait!

Makes approx 22

  • 130g butter, softened
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla paste
  • 1½ cups self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 150g dark chocolate roughly chopped (reserve larger pieces for tops)

1 Preheat oven to 180oC. Line two oven trays with baking paper. Cream butter and sugar for 3-4 minutes until pale and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Stir in sifted flour, cocoa and ¾ of the chopped chocolate.

2 Roll into walnut-sized balls (approx 30g) and flatten slightly. Decorate with a chocolate chunk or two, and bake on lined trays for 10-14 minutes. To test the cookies, gently press around the outside and the texture should feel firm/set, but the centre should be soft when pushed. For more crunch, cook longer, or for soft and chewy, cook less.
