Thank you all for your comments.

The dough was a little sticky so I placed it in the refrigerator for about 15-20mins then take out and quickly make to a ball shape and flatten with my palm... :)

I couldn't agree more with you about eating them from the cooling rack. They were lovely just warm with squidgy chocolate!
