When my monster was in pre prep (well over 10 years ago now) and going out for tea was a big part of our life, a really good friend used to buy big double chocolate cookies at a local supermarket. We all called them Chocolate cowpats, as that’s exactly what they look like. Being a bit of an organic mummy, I found the idea of hydrogenated vegetable oil a little step too far and some where I discovered a recipe for them (back in the old dial up days, it came out of a magazine – can not remember which). After it was tried, changed and tested and got all the children’s thumbs up, I scrawled it into my Nigella’s Domestic Goddess book and they were made in different forms for years. Its been some time since I last made any and today, we decided to bake a batch – I’d forgotten how yummy they are and so easy to bake too. The aroma alone makes them worth baking! So I thought I’d share the recipe with you:
If you try them, do let me know what you think, have a great weekend!
