- 200g plain chocolate chips or chunks- You would get the same from any grocery store. Otherwise use a good size chocolate and use it for making chunks.
1. Preheat the oven to about 190C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
2. Mix the butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy consistency. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg. Sieve the flour, soda and salt over the mixture and mix in with a wooden spoon. Add the chocolate chunks and mix well.
3. Using a small spoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays. Bake in the oven for 8–10 mins until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the Centre. I just love the cookies which has a moist Centre.
