Instant Chocolate Mousse: When you haven't got time for overnight setting in the fridge or you don't want to use raw eggs, this mousse is perfect. In fact, at all times, constraints or not, it is chocaliciously gorgeous.
Chocolate Chip Cookies It seems strange that I’ve managed to write seven books without one plain chocolate chip cookie (by which I mean a plain cookie with chocolate chips in it). It’s true that the Totally Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie made an appearance once, and it’s only buoyed up by its success that I’ve felt confident enough to create this one.
Nigella's coffee and walnut layer cake. Rose like a dream and stayed moist for days. I actually used the cake recipe to make about a dozen cappuccino cupcakes- just topped them with white chocolate frosting (lovely recipe pinned on my board) and sprinkled them with dark drinking chocolate. Heaven!
Chocolate Pudding: We're talking pure, all-encompassing bliss. When you eat this cooled, it is like chocolate satin cream and almost shocking in its pleasurable intensity. But I love it straight out of the pan, too, when it is like the best hot chocolate you've ever had, in spoonable form.
Salted Chocolate Tart: I have always avoided making chocolate tarts, not out of laziness (I love a bit of pastry-making, in the right mood), but because I have never really felt that the pastry served the chocolate, or was worth the effort here. This is my simple solution: make a base out of chocolate biscuits. And the filling is just as easy to make, too.
Nigella Lawson’s chocolate raspberry pavlova . Made it my own just by using strawberry and blueberries (Raspberries just have too many seeds for me!) absolutely yummy , easy, can be made ahead and looks impressive!!! Great summer dessert!
I’m stuck in that very precarious zone of trying to be healthy and good because it’s January and having lots of Christmas treats leftover to get through…what a quandary! The boxes of chocolates have been left well alone, but there was a beautifully wrapped Italian panettone lurking in the cupboard and I really can’t go on eating...
