Super Chunky Quick Bake Cookies

These cookies are a favourite in the SCM office. Quick to make and so moreish!

Takes 5 minutes to make, and 10 minutes to bake.


  • 300g caster sugar
  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 275g self-raising flour
  • 75g cocoa powder
  • 300 chocolate of your choice (for chunks)
  • Splash of vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy, then beat in the egg.
  3. Sift and stir in the flour and cocoa powder bit by bit until fully combined.
  4. Break or bash up your chocolate into chunk sized pieces and stir into the mixture. Note: your mixture should now be pretty thick and have the consistency of wet dough. If you think it is too dry, add a splash of milk. If it’s too wet, try adding more flour.
  5. Grab a couple of baking trays and line them with greaseproof paper. If you don’t have any just grease the trays with a bit of butter
  6. Make your dough into balls and space evenly on your baking tray. Don’t put them too close together as they will spread out when cooking. Note: The size of the cookie is up to you and whether you fancy four MASSIVE ones or ten smaller ones!
  7. Pop them in the oven for 10 minutes (you might have to adjust this depending on your oven). They will still look squishy when they come out – this is fine and they should firm up as the cool down.
  8. Eat them, share them, and bask in the glory of being the bestest baker in town!
