intense chocolate cookies

I love Nigella Lawson. I love her television show, her humor and just about every recipe I've tried. I especially love laying in bed at night and reading one of her cookbooks – I usually end up chuckling out loud at her tongue-in-cheek witticisms.

My favorite recipe of Nigella's, to date, is this one for Intense Chocolate Cookies (I love the name). They are seriously, intense – 3 different kinds of chocolate all combined into one delicious cookie. You must eat these while sipping an ice cold glass of milk.

 

Amelia and I whipped up a batch of these last week to take to my brother-in-law for his birthday.

Please note that the recipe does not make nearly enough and I usually end up quadrupling it, leaving plenty of cookies for neighbors, friends and our freezer. There is something infinitely comforting to me when our outside freezer is stocked full of food and desserts.

Hope you enjoy!

Angie,

Glad I'm not the only girl who feels inherently more at ease in the presence of good food and tasty treats! :-)

02.4 | Unregistered CommenterLindsay

These look amazing! This might be a silly quetion, but how do you convert the recipe from grams?!

02.4 | Unregistered CommenterKate

Oh wow these look amazing! I've seen her on TV before a long time ago but didn't know her name!

I just corrected the link to a recipe not in grams. So sorry for the oversight! Happy baking.... -Angie

OH shoot, I where can i find the recipe in grams? I entirely don't get ounces and such. Looks so delish, I can't wait to try it!

I absolutely love that recipe have made it many times!!! Isn't she great? Although you know that if it's a Nigella recipe, there's bound to be no holding back on butter/ sugar and the likes!

Love your packaging! too cute.

Here is the recipe link in grams: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/intensechocolatecook_87336.shtml

Thank you for the link to metric! My husband will LOVE these for Valentine's.

These look lovely! Where do you purchase your glassine bags (for this project and the ones you use for individually wrapped cookies?). The presentation is always so beautiful.

I buy the "Crystal Clear Cello Bags" from papermart.com. The size I like for packaging cookies is 4 X 2-1/2 X 9-1/2. It is a steal, at $8.28 for 100 bags. –Angie

Girls, Love the cookies, I made them last night, they were delicious and this morning the Today Show, tells us again that dark chocolate is healthy. Wow! Love you both and the Blog.

OK, quick question but do you use baking dark chocolate or just regular dark chocolate? I was at the store today to get the ingredients but realized I wasn't sure what kind to get. I know usually with baking, you get the "baking" type of chocolate. Any advice or comments out there to help me? Thanks!!

I've used both – "baking" dark chocolate as well as ghiradelli dark chocolate chips. Both work well. –Angie

I think the recipe looks really amazing, I haven't tasted this yet, but I would like to try this recipe on my next adventure in my kitchen, thanks for the recipe,

One day cooked some cookies in order my son carry to his school so I got a mistake and I mixed the flour with the Viagra Online pills of my husband, later my son told me that all his classmates were feeling so rare and uptight but to the waist toward down, it was so crazy because I didn't realize about it.
