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.
Nigella Lawson calls these simple chocolate biscuits 'Granny Boyd's biscuits' after her editor's, Eugenie Boyd, granny – who gave her the recipe. You can find the melt-in-the-mouth recipe in Paul A Young's Sensational Chocolate (£20), published to raise funds for The Children's Air Ambulance.
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 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!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pots: My children love a chocolate chip cookie so gooey on the inside that I can’t really make the outside firm enough to let the cookies keep integrity of form. This, then, is the solution: a cookie dough you bake in a little dish, and then eat with a spoon, dolloped with ice cream or crème fraîche as desired. From #SimplyNigella
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.
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.
