1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

2 cups plain flour

1 egg

1 egg yolk

1 tsp salt

2 tsp vanilla essence

3 tbsp milk

1 tsp bi-carb soda

1/3 cup cocoa powder

250g large dark chocolate buttons

50g dulce de leche, store bought or homemade

2 tsp salt flakes, to serve


1. Pre-heat oven to 170C (340F). Line two baking trays with baking paper.

2. Beat both sugars and butter together with electric beaters for about 5 minutes.

3. Add egg, egg yolk, vanilla essence, flour, salt, bi-carb soda and cocoa. Beat until all ingredients are combined.

4. Gently stir dark chocolate buttons through the cookie mix.

5. Take 1 heaped tablespoon of cookie dough and roll in to balls and place on pre-prepared trays. Place the balls about two inches apart so they have room to spread.

6. Bake in over for approx. 15-18 minutes until the cookies are cooked through and ever so slightly browned.

7. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Top with a spoonful of dulce de leche and sprinkle with salt flakes. Enjoy!
