Giant Galaxy Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Delicious, Gooey, Crunchy and YUMMY Giant Galaxy Chocolate Chip Cookies, full of Galaxy Goodness!

I’ve been feeling a bit of a Cookie craving recently, and I’m not even sure why. I know part of it is to do with how insanely successful my Kinder Bueno Cookie Bars were, and still are now… but I was craving something even more chocolatey… something DELICIOUS and heavenly. These cookies were born.

That makes it sound slightly weird I realise, but honestly they just kinda happened and oh my days. I call these ‘Giant’ cookies as I have specifically weighed them out to be the same size, and the batch only made nine cookies in comparison to the 12-14 the batch can make in my other recipes, such as my Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies, and my Toblerone Cookies.

I knew I wanted to do something a bit more Chocolate like compared to my other recent Cookie related recipes, and because it’s delicious. The recipe does differ slightly to my other Cookie recipes, such as my Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cookies. The other cookie recipes that are Chocolate (cocoa powder), because the other recipes use Self Raising FLour, and this one uses Plain Flour.

I decided to change to the Plain Flour, because I have made these several times, and the plain flour helps make them spread less. You only need to stop them from spreading so much as they are ‘Giant’ size, but if you’re making them smaller or ‘regular’ size, then you can use either of the flours. I also used a smidge more flour in weight size, because it helped.

These Giant Galaxy Chocolate Chip cookies are basically the middle between my chocolate cookie recipes and my cookie bar recipes. Plain flour, but no cornflour. Trust me, there is a reason, and I adore this recipe so much. It works perfectly. Also, to have a rather large amount of Galaxy per bite makes them INCREDIBLE.

I decided to use Galaxy over other chocolates because I had been having major cravings for minstrels, but I thought the chocolate bar would be better over Minstrels for the cookies. I know you can buy Galaxy cookies in the supermarket, but they are always suspiciously low on Galaxy:Cookie ratio. Mine is potentially a bit high, but if you stick with nine cookies, it’s roughly 40g of chocolate per 105g cookie, so I’m down with that. More chocolate the better (As long as it can bake).

I realise that they might not necessarily look so giant, but they are basically the size of my hand so they’re very decently sized and larger than usual. Obviously, the largest cookie you can do is one cookie, but I wanted these to still be individual but not ridiculous. These are perfectly sized for a good dessert style cookie or someone who reeeeally wants one. I personally still want a couple of them, but I’m definitely happy with the ‘giant’ size.

I often say to only put a few cookies on a tray, and people will often ignore that and wonder why their cookies end up a weird shape. With these ones, in particular, I really do recommend keeping only 3-4 cookies on a tray (a 40cm long tray, so a large tray) so that just in case they spread, they’ve got enough room. When I made even larger versions of these when experimenting for this recipe, I did end up with some odd cookies myself as they were a little too big! If there is such a thing… Anyway, enjoy! X

Ingredients

  • 125 g Unsalted Butter
  • 100 g Granulated Sugar
  • 100 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 25 g Cocoa Powder
  • 200 g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 350 g Galaxy Chocolate (chopped)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 190C/180C Fan/375F and line two/three baking trays with parchment paper.
  • Mix together the Unsalted Butter and two Sugars until light and fluffy and thoroughly combined.
  • Add the Vanilla and Egg, and mix again briefly. 
  • Add the Cocoa Powder, Plain Flour, Bicarbonate of Soda, Baking Powder and Salt and mix until a thick paste/cookie dough is formed. I use my KitchenAid with the paddle attachment!
  • Chop up the Galaxy Chocolate to 1cmish size pieces, and fold through.
  • Split the mixture evenly into 9 cookies - I weighed it to make it accurate, and they were roughly 105g each. Put 3/4 on a tray each, as they will spread. 
  • Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes – the longer the crunchier and chewier, the shorter the softer and gooier. 
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before gobbling up otherwise you might burn yourself on molten chocolate!

Notes

  • These are 'giant' size, so it only makes 9 in the recipe.
  • You can make them larger if you wish! I've made them as 150g each and only made 6, but they were very very large and only fit two on the tray. 
  • I used Galaxy Chocolate, but you can use Cadburys, or anything you fancy!
  • These will last for 4-5 days after baking, but they rarely do as they're eaten so quickly!

    These look amazing… Can these be frozen at all? Either before or after baking. Thanks!

    Hi there, I can’t seem to get light brown sugar anywhere at the moment. Could I substitute it with another type of sugar? What would work? Thank you!

    I don’t have any cocoa powder and can’t get hold of any – is there anything I can substitute this with?

      Replace it with more flour – it won’t be a chocolate based cookie dough, but it will still be yummy!

    Absolutely amazing recipe!
    I did 75g scoops of cookie dough which made 12 cookies (10 mins to bake) and they still came out massive!
    I’m a newbie to baking, my family couldn’t believe I’d made them ☺️ Thank you! 💙

    The worlds BEST cookies!
    First time I made them they turned out exactly like your photos (i was so proud lol), but every batch since then doesn’t seem to spread enough … somewhere between the ball of dough I put on the tray and yours.
    They still taste amazing, but would love some suggestions as to why they aren’t spreading enough please.
    I’ve tried altering the size of the chunks and altering the amount of egg (I tend to get large) to no avail 🙁

    Wow! Amazing cookies! Have pretty much been baking these weekly since discovering the recipe last month, but in having a reoccurring issue …

    The first batch I ever made turned out exactly like your photos (I was soooooo proud lol) but every time since they don’t seem to spread as much – kinda half way between the ball of tough I put on the tray and yours :/

    Don’t get me wrong, they still taste amazing and have a lovely gooey middle, but I’d like to know where I’m going wrong.

    I’ve tried altering the amount of egg (I tend to get large eggs) and size of chunks, but can’t seem to solve the issue 🙁

    I’d love some suggestions please Jane 😀 Thanks

      Hey! Yes so it should be similar to my Mini Egg Cookie Cake (but one layer) – so I’d bake for 25-30 minutes or so! x

    Wow.
    I’ve never made cookies before, I’m much more or a cake person. Not anymore! I absolutely loved these, so easy to make the recipe was simple and I got the most amazing cookies out of it.
    I’m going to make another batch with dairy milk next 🤤
    Thanks for the amazing recipe

      You can use most chocolates – any with a filling you should look at my Rolo Cookies for inspiration, as that shows how the fillings can explode somewhat whilst baking!

      Take out the cocoa powder and add in 50g more flour! (Adding in 1tbsp of cornflour will also make sure they don’t spread too far)

    I made these to the recipe are they supposed to extremely sweet in flavour?

      Everyone’s tastes are different, so what you might find extremely sweet, someone else might find not sweet at all. If you made these with the exact ingredients I did and used the right amounts, then its how they taste.

      Hi Jane, I guess they would need less time in the oven if they are smaller?
      Thanks!

    How do you make the cookie shape? Do you just roll in to balls and bake or flatten them slightly? Can’t wait to bake these with my daughter x

      After weighing them they were sorta already ball shape so just left them to flatten themselves in the oven 🙂 x
