Preheat oven to 170°C. Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until smooth and creamy.
Beat in egg and vanilla.
Add in flour and salt, beat until just combined (do not overmix).
Fold in 1/2 cup of the dark chocolate chips.
Transfer batter to the lined baking tin, smoothing the surface with a spatula. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
Bake for around 40 mins, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Set pan on a wire rack, and let cool completely.
