Place the mix, together with the butter, chocolate chunks and water into a bowl.

Mix to form a dough.

Working on a floured surface cut out the shapes you want for cookies and place on a baking tray spaced apart.

Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and bake for up to 14 minutes.

Place on a cooling tray to cool completely.
