Best Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Cookies


I don’t remember when was the first time I spent Saturday night at Lynn’s – probably after my first big heartbreak. All we did was eating pizza and drinking wine.

Years passed, heartbreaks got way more complicated but Saturday nights stayed the same – me, Lynn, some junk food (sometimes a bit of broccoli), bad teen netflix shows, me sleeping on her couch.

One day I texted her saying I wanted something gooey. We baked these. My life changed. FOREVER.

And when I knew I was going to be alone at my boyfriend’s house one day, I immediately thought about these. I baked them and ate three, while still hot (see a recurring theme?).

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

If you ever feel down and need some comforting, please make these cookies. They are just perfect – crispy on the outside, melty and gooey on the inside. You can put them together in five minutes, bake for ten and then after an hour just get cosy on a sofa with a cup of coffee and a plate of them and forget about the world. Or, you know, go in  a different route and share them with someone you love. Possibilities really are endless


So here goes the recipe, in Lynn’s exact words:



Best, Easiest, Most Gooey Chocolate Chunk Cookies


-200g Unsalted Butter

-300g Caster Sugar

-1 Teaspoon Vanilla

-325g Self Raising Flour

-200g Chocolate, chopped (or more)

-Nuts, Candy (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, line the baking sheet
  2. Cream butter and sugar
  3. Mix in egg and vanilla
  4. Add flour in parts to the mixture
  5. Add a dash of milk if you have difficulty binding – but do not overmix!
  6. Mix in chocolate and candy
  7. Roll dough into a ping pong ball sizes, spread them out with a lot of space – do not flatten the balls!
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until the cookie edges are very slightly golden
  9. Remove from the oven and let the cookies rest for at least 30 mins before touching (well.. who said I had strong will) – otherwise they will wobble and fall apart
