Preheat the to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Break the chocolate into squares and put into a plastic bag. With a rolling pin, break the chocolate into chunks (alternatively, you can use chocolate chips).
In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugars and beat together until fluffy. Add the egg and beat until creamy. Mix in the vanilla extract then fold in the flour and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chunks (or chips) then place cookie-sized drops onto the prepared tray, allowing for spread.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown and firm. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack before serving.
