Yield 1 cookie 1x
Prep: 15 minutesCook: 12 minutesTotal: 27 minutes

One giant chocolate cookie covered in candy.


  • 30 grams (2 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 45 grams (1/4 cup) brown sugar
  • 15 grams (1 tablespoon) caster sugar
  • 1/2 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 65 grams (1/3 cup + 2 level tablespoons) plain flour
  • 7 grams (1 tablespoon) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 45 grams (1/4 cup) chocolate chips, plus extra for decorating
  • 45 grams (1/4 cups) pink and purple Smarties or M&M’s


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Line a cookie sheet with baking or parchment paper.
  2. Melt your butter  in the microwave until just melted. Add brown sugar and caster sugar and give it a stir. Add egg and vanilla and stir.
  3. Add plain flour, cocoa powder and baking soda and stir until it starts to form a chocolate dough. Then stir through chocolate chips.
  4. Place the dough on your cookie sheet and spread it out to form one large flat cookie – roughly 6 inches in diameter.
  5. Press extra chocolate chips and candy on top. Bake for approximately 12 minutes. Leave to cool completely.


*To get half a large egg, crack one large egg in a small bowl. Beat with a fork and then halve it. The best way to determine exactly half is by weighing the egg. Our large eggs are approximately 50 grams so I used 25 grams of egg.
