Preheat the oven to 180C | gas mark 4. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the golden caster sugar, almond pieces, chocolate chunks and salt. Sieve in the cocoa powder, flour and soda.
In a separate bowl, combine the nut butter, butter and golden syrup. Once combined, add it to the flour mixture. Mix using a wooden spoon and bring the dough together using your hands.
Divide the dough into 8 golf sized balls, flatten slightly and place on the baking tray.
Bake in the middle of the oven for 8-10 minutes. The edges of the cookies should feel firm but the centre will be still quite soft. Leave to cool for 15 minutes.
