Totally Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

How was your Sunday?

Mine was filled with Nigella Lawson videos! Yes, I have been watching her videos the whole day. Drooling all over my laptop.

I've watched her videos many many many times, I can't stress how many times I've seen it over and over again. But I just can't seem to get bored of watching her cook and bake!

So, instead of eating healthily to look good for my birthday next weekend, yes, next Sunday the 21st August! As a treat, I've decided to make some Totally Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies that is to die for! And I got this lovely delicious recipe from Nigella! You might have already made this many times, but I believe that this is just too good not to share it with you all.'s totally CRISP too!
