Everyone will love these chocolate cookies that are perfect for sharing — just be sure to leave enough for everyone!


1 cup softened butter
1⁄2 cup caster sugar
2 cups plain flour
200g milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar, 2 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the flour and a pinch of sea salt and mix to combine.
  4. Using a tablespoon of dough, roll into balls and place on the prepared tray.
  5. Use the tines of a fork to flatten slightly.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until just golden.
  7. Remove and cool for 20 minutes.
  8. In another bowl, melt the chocolate in a microwave in 30-second increments until nice and smooth.
  9. Dip three-quarters of each cookie into the melted chocolate.
  10. Chill to set.


  1. Rather than dipping the cookies into chocolate, melt only 100g and using the tines of a fork, dip them into the melted chocolate and drizzle one way, up and down. Then cross-ways to create a really pretty criss-cross pattern.
  2. I often make these and after I have dipped them in chocolate, I roll them in chopped pecans. These make a beautiful gift for your children’s teachers. I bought cellophane bags, ribbon and tags and we filled the bags with beautiful cookies, wrapped with a pretty ribbon and wrote on the tag “Thank you” after dipping to give as gifts to my boy’s teachers, in chocolate
