the best cookies ever
I just made the best cookies ever. Mmm. Well, I just made three batches, and of the two that have come out of the oven and cooled (just) long enough for me to try they are both good. The first batch was from the cookie recipe you get when you sign up for my newsletter. But the second... Oh my. I got misshaped (that weren't really that misshaped) caramel centred "O"s (chocolate discs) from l'Artisan du Chocolat and I pressed them into a chocolate cookie batter and patted them around the edges to hold in the disc. They look so pretty! And they taste so gooood. I expect there may be a few left for the family Easter trip to the Lake District, which is what they were intended for.
Clever Jonny just took a picture for me. I love technology.
Chocolate lights me up. I love it. I'm sure it all started with my mum eating loads of Mars Bars when she was pregnant with me, but I inherited my dad's love for the dark stuff. Chocolate makes me happy. I live, eat and breathe chocolate and especially love sharing chocolate discoveries with people. I live in London, which I love, especially for the amazing chocolate sold here. I write about my encounters with chocolate here, but I also show people to the best chocolate in London on the Chocolate Ecstasy Tours.
