  • 200 g (~ 7 oz) unsalted butter, room temperature (plus a little extra for greasing the dish)
  • 240 g (~ 1 1/3 cups) light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 150 g (~ 1 cup) plain flour
  • 100 g (~ 1/2 cup) milk chocolate chips
  • 75 g (~ 2 1/2 oz) milk chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F).
  • Add the butter and brown sugar to a bowl, and use the back of a spoon to thoroughly cream them together until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, vanilla extract, baking powder, plain flour, and chocolate chips. Mix well to combine.
  • Lightly grease a baking dish (mine measured around 8 x 8 inches), and add half the cookie dough. Spread it around into a smooth layer, and top with some extra squares of milk chocolate. Add the remaining cookie dough, and smooth out the top.
  • Bake for around 25 minutes, or until the top of the bake is browned and crispy. It will still be quite jiggly in the middle. If you'd rather it was slightly more well cooked, cover the dish loosely with foil, and place it back in the oven until you're happy.
