This is what happens when there's a snow day and your children are home. Butter, chocolate and cookies. These are the ultimate children's comfort treat (adults quite like them too). The only problem is you have to wait a couple of hours to let them set, which is a test of self control. This started off as a Nigella Lawson recipe, she suggested using mini marshmallows which I'm sure would have been fantastic but I didn't have any and they were still wonderful and everyone had a smile on their face, how often can you say that!
I suppose you could add all sorts of goodies if you felt the need, pistachios, dried cherries, cashews, the list is endless....
