Chocolate Heaven


Double choc chip cookies, originally uploaded by lazygiraffe.

I am not responsible for any diets broken by this blog post.

Today I made double chocolate chip cookies, I have recently managed to perfect making brownies, after several failed attempts in the past, so I have been a bit brownie made recently and fancied a change.

I know these are still chocolate but cookies are something quite different :) They are much better with tea (or milk of course) too.

These are adapted from a Nigella Lawson recipe (I can't bear Nigella Lawson herself but she does have some great recipes) which was really really heavy on the chocolate. I admit to having to tone it down a little bit - for the sake of my health and the fact that I didn't have 500g of chocolate, which is what the recipe required. Instead I used 100g of chocolate and about 75g for the chips. I used chopped up dark chocolate rather than cooking chocolate chips as I prefer to use proper chocolate.

These are great soft cookies and they are so chocolatey but not too cakey and bakey so they aren't too dense. These are the best ones I've ever made. The only problem with these is that you have to wait at least 5 or 10 mins for them to crisp up a bit and the chocolate to set before stuffing your face.

If you have broken your diet with these, you probably won't care anyway because they are too good.
