this recipe is the best ever in my country

Love the original recipe, I added white, dark and normal chocolate and was such a hit! I also have made a batch with more cocoa, less flour to make them a lot more chocolatey and I couldn't stop myself from eating them! #chocolatelover

I enjoyed making this recipe with my grandma and I could not wait to taste them. They looked like chocolate mousse! I kept sneaking chocolate chips from the box. A lovely smell was wafting through the kitchen! My grandma and I made 42 cookies!! Simmply mouth watering!

So easy and quick to make, great for ice cream sandwiches.

Perfect base recipe for chewy cookies that aren't cakey. Surprising to see less sugar in this recipe than in others - that's awesome Chelsea!

I melted the chocolate chips and mixed them in after I had just combined the wet and dry; it gives the cookie a slightly more fudge-like texture.

I also baked some straight away and froze the rest; the frozen ones came out much chewier and fudgier! I froze them in balls so they didn't flatten right down but I gently pushed them down once they had come out of the oven and cooled for a minute, which resulted in a kind of double layered fudge cookie. Bangin.

My family love these easy to bake biscuits, I've baked them a few times now, so to experiment a little I added 1 cup chocolate m&ms or maltesers.. A perfect treat for all us chocolate lovers.

super yummy and super simple

Very tasty!

Great recipe but we have to cook for 15 mins not 8.

A- Mazing biscuits
Only added one cup of sugar

Overall it was amazing and it worked really well for me. I also enjoy the setup of the web page it makes it a whole lot easier.

Wow - absolutely delicious using plain chocolate!

Fab recipe. Used a mix of the new Cadbury caramilk chocolate and energy 10/10

Soft biscuits, taste good but spread and go quite flat. I was hoping for crisp on the outside and squishy on the inside but even with leaving them in the oven a bit longer than advised they were squishy all over!

Nope sadly it hasn't worked for me.
Done this recipe twice and its never worked.

Basic recipe easy to follow however I may have needed to dissolve milk with the baking soda. but it didn't say. But very good I am happy.

So yummy. One is never enough!!!!!

I made these today, followed recipe exactly. Turned out perfect - squishy on the inside cookies. Perfect. Make sure to leave them on the cookie sheet for 5 mins to harden slightly before cooling rack. Great recipe.


I love these cookies, but I add a bit of oil to add moisture to the mixture otherwise it is too dry. This may also be because I use egg replacer and olivani instead of actual egg and butter as my daughter is allergic. I also use super dark chocolate for the same reasons. The whole family love these. My husband says they taste like subway biscuits :) caution they do spread further than I expected too.
