nigella says: totally chocolate chip cookies for broken hearts

"now, i agree that to some people using half a kilo of chocolate to make 12 biscuits may seem excessive but i can tell you i don't put a price on alleviating human suffering."

i couldn't stop laughing for 5 minutes
here is the goddess at work on some cookies that i am hoping to make soon
oh chocolate goodness
totally chocolate chip cookies
chocolate = love

totally chocolate chip cookies


  • Nigella Recipe
  • 125g dark chocolate, minimum 70% cocoa solids
  • 150g flour
  • 30g cocoa, sieved
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 125g soft butter
  • 75g light brown sugar
  • 50g white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, cold from the fridge
  • 350g (2 bags) semi-sweet chocolate morsels or dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3. Melt the 125g dark chocolate either in the microwave or in a heatproof dish over a pan of simmering water.
  2. Put the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl.
  3. Cream the butter and sugars in another bowl. (I use my freestanding mixer, itself an odd source of comfort to me.) Add the melted chocolate and mix together.
  4. Beat in the vanilla extract and cold egg, and then mix in the dry ingredients. Finally stir in the chocolate morsels or chips.
  5. Scoop out 12 equal-sized mounds - an ice cream scoop and a palette knife are the best tools for the job - and place on a lined baking sheet about 6cm apart. Do not flatten them.
  6. Cook for 18 minutes, testing with a cake tester to make sure it comes out semi-clean and not wet with cake batter. If you pierce a chocolate chip, try again.
  7. Leave to cool slightly on the baking sheet for 4-5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to harden as they cool.
Serves: Makes 12
