Chocolate Cookies | Beginner Bakers Series

Today I’m sharing these scrumptious, crispy chocolate cookies. This post is apart of my collaboration with Sprinkle of Surprise. Of course, make sure you’re following both of our blogs to keep up to date 🙂 Next week is the third and final post, I hope you’ve enjoyed this series so far!

These cookies are your basic, chocolate cookies but you can change around the ingredients and personalise it however you wish. I personally just made them with white and milk chocolate chips. You could change these out and use nuts, biscuits or different types of chocolate. If you try them out, let me know what you put in them!

And they are, obviously, perfect for beginner bakers!

Serves: around 20 average-size cookies

Prep time: around 20 minutes

Oven temperature: 200°C

Difficulty: Easy (perfect for beginners)

Choc Cookies


200g butter

300g caster sugar

1 large egg

250g self-raising flour

75g cocoa powder

around a tablespoon of milk

your choice of chocolate (how much depends on your personal preference)


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line trays with baking paper.

2. Cream the butter and sugar together with the back of a spoon.

3. Stir in the egg, flour and cocoa powder and add the milk. You may need a little more milk if the mixture is quite dry.

4. Stir in the chocolate.

5. Roll the mixture into balls and place on the tray (dip your hands in water so the mixture doesn’t stick).

6. Bake for around 15 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!

    • Yeah, you could totally do them with dark choc chips! I thought about adding them as well but figured all three would be a bit much haha… 😉 Thanks for reading xx
