  • 125g butter, at room temperature, chopped
  • 100g (1/2 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
  • 70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) Baileys Irish Cream liqueur
  • 1 egg
  • 200g (1 1/3 cups) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 290g pkt dark chocolate melts, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 3 large baking trays with baking paper. Use electric beaters to beat the butter, sugars and liqueur in a small bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg. Beat until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Sift in the flour, bicarb and salt. Stir until just combined. Add the chocolate. Stir until just combined. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to rest.
  2. Use slightly damp hands to roll 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Place the balls, 6cm apart, on the prepared trays. Use the heel of your hand to slightly flatten the balls.
  3. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until light golden. Set aside on trays for 5 minutes to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve.
