Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a baking tray.

Melt dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

Sift flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl. Cream butter and both sugars. Add melted chocolate and mix together.

Beat in vanilla and eggs, one at a time, then mix in dry ingredients

Mix through chocolate chips. Dollop rounded tablespoonfuls of mixture on a baking sheet, about 6cm apart. Don’t flatten; they will spread as they bake.

Bake for 18 minutes until firm to the touch but still slightly soft; they’ll harden on cooling.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
