The good chocolate

I've recently decided that I don't want to use chocolate chips anymore. This is partly because of the cost, and partly because I don't know what is added to make them not melt properly. So I made my chocolate chip cookies using real chocolate - in this case Whittakers Dark Ghana 72%. There's a bit more work involved, cutting up the chocolate, and you don't get even pieces. They're a bit darker than usual, because some of the chocolate has crumbled too fine, and they're not as sweet because the chocolate is so dark. They're somewhat addictive though, and I look forward to making them again this way.
