These cookies are packed with three types of chocolate, sweetened with good quality vanilla, with a touch of salt for that true addictive quality. Great with a cup of tea or coffee for a mid morning snack (or as a sugar rush when you're late first thing as I often am), it's a struggle to contain yourself to just one.

Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment

This recipe makes around 16-20 cookies, depending on your scoop size.

  • 170 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 200 g light brown/light muscovado sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • 100 g milk chocolate
  • 100 g dark chocolate

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon/Spatula
  • Measuring cups/scales
  • Measuring spoons
  • Chopping board & a sharp knife
  • Baking trays and parchment
  • Cookie scoop if you have one, or a couple of tablespoons
  • Cooling rack
  • An oven, preheated to 180 C/350 F/Gas 4
(An electric mixer will make your life easier, but if you've got a fairly strong arm a wooden spoon will do just as well)

For anyone without scales, a good weight to volume conversion guide can be found here.
