THE Totally Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have you tried THE totally chocolate chocolate chip cookies? From Nigella of course. If you haven't, you really must! ;) She is one who knows her chocolates well indeed.

For a long while, I've bookmarked this recipe from Nigella Express but it's only till now that I've a chance to make it. Yes, so many things to do but so little time to do them. I need more hours!! Do you feel that way too?


For me, the most important thing right now is to get moving with the recipe!! I can't wait ;P


125g dark chocolate (min 70% cocoa solids)
150g plain flour
30g cocoa powder (sieved)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
125 butter (softened)
90g light brown sugar
50g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 medium egg (cold)
350g dark chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave oven or via the double boiling method which would be a metal dish over a simmering pot of water.
  3. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together.
  4. Cream the butter and sugars together in another bowl.
  5. Add the melted chocolate and mix together.
  6. Beat in the vanilla extract and cold egg, and then mix in the dry ingredients.
  7. Finally stir in the chocolate chips.
  8. Scoop out 12 equal mounds using an ice-cream scoop and place them in a lined baking sheet about 6cm apart. Do not flatten them.
  9. Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes until the cookies are slightly firm on the edges. Do not fret - the tops of the cookies will look and feel soft. They will harden when cooled.
  10. Leave them to cool on the baking sheet for about 4-5 mins before transferring them to a wire rack.

I just had a small piece of this totally chocolate chocolate chip cookie and I was really moaning in delight at the taste of this dark rich chocolate. Awesome!!! Now, I need a glass of cold milk :)
