Ingredients:

Method:

1. Preheat your oven to 180C

2. Melt the butter in the microwave, before beating it together with the sugar. You can do this using a stand mixer or electric beaters – or by hand if you’re willing to sweat.

3. Add the egg and beat for 10-15 seconds.

4. Mix in the flour and salt until you’ve formed a smooth dough.

5. Add the chocolate buttons and combine.

6. Make individual balls of dough and place on a baking tray – make sure you leave enough room between them so they don’t spread into each other.

7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, depending on how gooey you want them.

8. Let them cool for 30 minutes.
