The Best Cookie Recipe EVER


Hey Artsy Teens,

Happy Valentine’s day! I hope you’re all having a good week. I was actually going to post this recipe earlier, but I then I thought better not – there still might be a few people determined to stick to all those “stay healthy” new year’s resolutions. ButΒ I think I’ve left a sufficient amount of time for everyone to have given up on them by now, right? Also, I realize that calling these the best cookiesΒ ever might be a bit presumptuous but hey, if you really want to prove me wrong you’ll just have to try making them yourself πŸ˜‰ !




cookies 6

1 cup butter, melted

1 cup caster/granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

4 cups all purpose/plain flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I saved a few to put on top of the cookies)

1 tbsp cocoa powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 180’C/350’F.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together.
  3. Mix in vanilla extract and eggs.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt.
  5. Mix well and add chocolate chips.
  6. Take about 2 tbsps of the mixture and using your hands, roll the balls and place on a cookie sheet*. Flatten each cookie with a fork and press a few chocolate chips on top.
  7. Bake for 9-11 minutes until the cookies look golden (the cookies will still be soft to the touch, but don’t worry – they’ll harden as they cool). Enjoy!

*If the cookie dough is a bit sticky, rub some vegetable oil onto your hands to prevent the dough from sticking to your fingers.
