Ingredients (serves 4):

    - 110g flour
    - 50g dark cooking chocolate
    - 100g chocolate chips
    - 50g butter
    - 50g brown sugar
    - 50g white sugar
    - 1 small egg
    - 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    - 1 pinch of baking powder or bicarbonate of soda
    - 1 good pinch of salt

Method:

Melt the chocolate, add chopped butter to it and mix until smooth.

Beat in the eggs and sugar, then add the butter-chocolate mixture.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, and add to the previous mixture, creating a ball of dough. Add the chocolate chips, create a sausage-like shape and wrap in cling film. Place in the fridge for 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 160°C (Gas Mark 5-6). Cover a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Cut the dough into slices, about 2cm/¾in thick, and place on the baking tray, spaced well apart. Bake for about 12 to 14 minutes, the cookies shouldn't be hard when they come out of the oven. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
