Of course you can bake chocolate cookies in a thousand different ways, but this one is easily my favourite. It’s easy, tasty and the end result is so amazingly pretty that you will want to fill your Instagram Feed with a million pictures of these tasty treats.

Whenever I feel like baking, I rather go for a cake or some brownies instead of cookies. But during the last holidays I felt like it was time for something new. My classic meringues magically appeared out of my oven with a fresh lemon flavour and I decided to bake the beste recipe for chocolate cookies ever.


You don’t want to skip the step where you put the dough in a fridge. Because it is made with butter, it is really important to let it harden in the fridge before you start baking, otherwise the cookies will be huuuge and not as chewy as you’d wish.

The recipe exists of only 5 steps. Just make sure you’ve set all the ingredients within arms reach and it’ll be a matter of easy peasy lemon squeezy.
