Here at Chops Kitchen we’ve baked a lot of damn fine cookies in our time but…

we have to doff our caps to Tana Ramsay’s super easy and super delicious recipe. And the kids can bake ’em too

300g good milk chocolate
200g soft unsalted butter
200g caster sugar
150g soft light brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
300g plain flour
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Preheat oven — 180ºC / Gas Mark 4. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
Break chocolate into small chunks — (note for 6 year olds – be sure to buy extra chocolate to eat at this point)
Beat butter and sugars in a bowl until light and smooth. Beat in eggs, stirring through.
Add flour, vanilla and bicarb, then stir in choc chunks.
Spoon mounds of mixture onto baking sheet, leaving room for them to spread while baking. Bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown.
They will continue to set while cooling so be careful not to overcook.
Allow to cool for 10 mins then remove to a wire cooling rack.
EAT THEM ALL (if you are under 10 years old).
