Chocolate heaven: a cookie mixture around a chocolate centre. Divine straight from the oven or warmed up again in the microwave!


Serves: 12 

  • 150g margarine or unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg yolk
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 100-175g chocolate

Preparation:35min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C
  2. In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk.
  3. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the mix, and stir in with a metal spoon.
  4. Mix the dough until it is well kneaded together. Cover and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Break a walnut-sized piece of dough off, mould it into a ball, and flatten it out using the palm of your hand to a 10cm circle.
  6. Place a few squares of chocolate into the middle and wrap up the cookie to form a ball-shaped parcel.
  7. Place on a tray and bake for 8-10 minutes - do not let the cookies get too dark.
  8. Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes and then carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool
  9. Delicious warm!

These bikkies have lasted for a week now, and still as yummy as when I baked them...... just a wonderful recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this. - 12 Oct 2010


very easy recipe. I threw choc chips in, instead of having the gooey centre & also a few drops of vanilla essence. Base dough is so simple to make and not too sweet! - 31 Jan 2012
