Totally Chocolate Chocolate Chips Cookies

I had this cookies recipe from a book of my favarite chef "Nigella Lawson". It is a very dark rich chocolate cookies that I shall remind you to drink more water after eating it. If you like to feed it to children, please use less than 70% cocoa solids so that they don't feel too beater. As for me, I really like those dark and beater flavor when eating those chocolate dessert. This recipe is just right for those chocoholic.
Original recipe from Nigella Lawson:

125g dark chocolate, minimum 70% cocoa solids 150g flour 30g cocoa, sieved 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda ½ teaspoon salt 125g soft butter 75g light brown sugar 50g white sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 egg, cold from the fridge 350g semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Preheat the oven to 170’C. Melt the 125g dark chocolate either in the microwave or in a heatproof dish over a pan of simmering water.
  • Put the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl.
  • 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.
  • Beat in the vanilla extract and cold egg, and then mix in the dry ingrdients. Finally stir in the chocolate morsels or chips.
  • Scoop out 12 equal-sized mounds – an ice cream scoop and a palette knife are he best tools for the job – and place on a lined baking sheet about 6cm apart. Do not flatten them.
  • 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.
  • Leave to call slightly on the baking sheet for 4 -5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to harden as they cool.

Yummy cookies !
350g of chocolate chips?! That sounds a lot. Do I need to cut down the sugar if my family does not have a sweet tooth?

Hi Anonymous,
Yes, it's quite a lot of chocolate chips that required from Nigella Lawson recipe. However, you could reduce some if you want to. And I think it shouldn't be a problem if you cut down the sugar from the recipe. Please let me know the result, cheers!
