Delicious, gooey, crunchy and YUMMY giant Galaxy chocolate chip cookies, full of Galaxy goodness!

Cookie bakes 

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.

If you follow my recipes a lot, you’ll know that these are basically the original version of my NYC Cookies – my nyc chocolate chip cookies and my triple chocolate NYC Cookies are some of my favourites, but I have so many of them now. 

Cookie Dough 

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.

Tips & Tricks

  • 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!
  • I recommend these baking trays!

Author: Jane's Patisserie


  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • 100 g light brown sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 350 g Galaxy chocolate (chopped)


  • Preheat your oven to 200ºc/180ºc fan 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 1cm(ish) 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. 
  • Put the cookie dough balls in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or the fridge for 1 hour or so!
  • Bake in the oven for 11-13 minutes.
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before gobbling up otherwise you might burn yourself on molten chocolate!


  • These are 'giant' size, so it only makes 9 in the recipe.

  2. Evie on October 4, 2023 at 2:54 pm

    Hiya, i’ve had these galaxy cookie dough in the freezer for a little over a week are they still okay to bake and eat?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 28, 2023 at 11:54 am

      Yes, cookie dough can freeze for 3+ months x

  3. Tracey on September 19, 2023 at 6:00 pm

    If I wanted to make these into 12 do I need to alter the re ipr or just make the balls smaller?

    Hi Jane
    Please could you tell me if these cookies should be put in the fridge or freezer (like some of your other ones)
    before baking?
    Also what would be the best way to add caramel galaxy to this recipe please?
    Thanks xx
    Ps. LOVE your recipes and can’t get enough of them & am always being asked to make them! The creme egg ones were described as ‘SENSATIONAL!’

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 28, 2022 at 4:29 pm

      Hiya! No – only do this if the recipe specifies to, and freeze your Caramel Galaxy chunks before adding them to your mixture! Hope this helps & thank you so much! Enjoy! x

  6. Nora on December 16, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    If I want to make them 45 grams each
    Will 10 minutes be good?

  7. Nora on December 4, 2021 at 2:10 pm

    Hello jane
    If I want to make it mini size how much would it weigh in grams and how much time should I keep it in the oven ?

    Same question to nutella cookies
    Please answer me ❤️

  8. Nora on December 2, 2021 at 2:30 pm

    Can I heat it in the microwave the next day?

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 2, 2021 at 2:34 pm

      Yes absolutely they’d be delicious and gooey! x

    Absolutely amazing cookies, thank you so much for this recipe – if I was to freeze the raw cookie dough would these need to be defrosted prior to putting in the oven or can I bake them from frozen? Thank you

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 13, 2021 at 2:57 pm

      Hey! Awh thank you so much I am so pleased you love them. Nope they don’t need defrosting you can just bake them straight from frozen, that’s the beauty of it!x

  10. Lee Sheehan on March 19, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Do you have to melt the butter first?

  11. Ellen on January 31, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    If I don’t want to use cocoa powder in this recipe how much flour should I substitute it with
    Love your cookie recipes x

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 1, 2021 at 5:13 pm

      Personally I would recommend following my NYC Cookie recipe, and using galaxy chunks in that x

  12. Barbie on November 11, 2020 at 4:50 am

    This recipe looks awesome…can you describe what type of chocolate bar a Galaxy is? I live in Canada and we don’t have them here. Is it a bar of solid chocolate, a filled bar or something with nuts or chocoate, maybe I can find something similar. These look so yummy I can’t wait to try making them. Many thanks.

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 11, 2020 at 12:11 pm

      I believe Galaxy is Dove chocolate in America, and I assume Canada too?! It’s a solid chocolate bar. x

    Absolutely gorgeous cookies. Easy to follow recipe and tasted like shop bought cookies. Thankyou. Xx

  14. Claire on June 19, 2020 at 11:21 am

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

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 19, 2020 at 7:34 pm

      Thank you! And they can be frozen raw or baked! x

  15. Natalie on June 10, 2020 at 12:43 pm

    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!

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 10, 2020 at 4:21 pm

      Hey! I would use white granulated sugar, or dark brown sugar personally! x

  16. Claire on June 5, 2020 at 7:20 pm

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

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 5, 2020 at 8:53 pm

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

  17. Jodie on May 23, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    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 🙁

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 21, 2020 at 8:32 am

      Hey! Ahh, how strange!! Maybe just squish them slightly before baking?!

    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

    Can I make this into a cookie bar

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 16, 2020 at 2:59 pm

      Yes you can! I would use my other cookie bars as a guide x

    • Ashleigh on March 18, 2021 at 8:49 pm

      Hi Jane

      Are you meant to flatten these or keep them in a round ball like your NYC cookie recipes x

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 22, 2021 at 4:38 pm

      I don’t flatten them x

    Hi lovely, If I made this as one big cookie in an 8 inch tin, how long would I bake it for & would it still be at the same temp please. Thank you 🙂 xxx

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 17, 2020 at 12:56 pm

      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

    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

    I love this recipe the cookies are amazing. I was wondering what other chocolates could I use could I use a chocolate that has caramel or wafer in it or ever chocolates like mars or snickers

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 2, 2020 at 2:56 pm

      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!

    These cookies were absolutely amazing! Thank you for the recipe, they were a huge hit with the whole family.

  28. Kim on January 27, 2020 at 10:01 am

    Hi I was wondering if this was the correct amount of chocolate as seems such a large bar for the amount of cookies thanks

  29. Ashlee on December 5, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    If I made this as one big cookie cake in an 8 inch tin, how long would I bake? Please x

    Your recipes never disappoint and this one didn’t either! These cookies taste delicious and they are giant, could it be better!

  31. Tanya Nowell on June 4, 2019 at 6:49 pm

    How do I make these as a normal cookie not chocolate please? Xxx

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 5, 2019 at 3:35 pm

      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)

  32. Rachel on May 10, 2019 at 6:25 pm

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

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 11, 2019 at 9:28 am

      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.

  33. Zee on October 3, 2018 at 12:02 am

    Can smaller size ones be made?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 3, 2018 at 10:29 am

      Yep! Although, more cookie the better!

    • Leanne on February 3, 2019 at 3:30 pm

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

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 4, 2019 at 9:06 am

      Yes! About 10 minutes!

  34. Paul on October 2, 2018 at 12:57 pm

    What scales do you use

  35. Claire on October 1, 2018 at 9:31 pm

    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

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 2, 2018 at 9:53 am

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