Reduce speed and add eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined. Reduce speed to low and add flour; beat until just combined. Stir through chocolate.

Roll heaped tablespoons of dough into balls. Place onto trays about 10cm apart. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on trays for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Repeat with any remaining cookie dough.
