Easy Peasy – Double Chocolate Chip Cookies – Recipe Makes 6

Easy Peasy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today I made some absolutely divine, Double Chocolate Chip Cookies from the Nigella Lawson recipe.

The recipe actually makes a quantity of 12 Cookies, but you can freeze some and then cook them later on, which will save you Preparation time. So a very quick and easy snack.

These were a HUGE hit in our house, there taste absolutely gorgeous!… and they are sooooo easy to make

Enjoy 🙂


 Recipe type: Dessert, Cookie
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12


  • 125 grams dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids)               
  • 150 grams plain flour                                              
  • 30 grams cocoa powder (sieved)               
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda                                              
  • ½ teaspoon salt                                              
  • 125 grams soft unsalted butter                                              
  • 75 grams soft light brown sugar                                              
  • 50 grams white sugar                                              
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract                                              
  •  1 large egg (cold from the fridge)               
  •  350 grams dark chocolate chips  (I used White)            


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3/325ºF. Melt the 125g / 4oz 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.
