Ugh. I’ve been sick. Again. A few weeks after recovering from the cold I managed to get the flu.

The last few days have been spent huddled under layers of blankets, unable to get warm enough, until suddenly I’m too hot and have to cast everything aside in a desperate effort to cool down before the cycle starts again. My husband, Troy, ordered me to rest and relax, but after a day of watching tv and reading – I just finished the The Boleyn King trilogy, which started well, but ended disappointingly, and am re-reading The Other Typist, which I loved –  I felt I’d go out of my mind if I rested any longer. So, as you do when you have a fever, I decided to bake bread and make a big pot of this fennel soup, swapping out the risoni for rice.

While soup and cups of tea have been my diet of the last few days I thought I’d share a chocolate recipe with you. And not just a chocolate recipe, but a recipe for Smoked Sea Salt Flourless Chocolate Cookies. Chocolate cures all evils and illnesses. At least I’d like to think so.

These Smoked Sea Salt Flourless Chocolate Cookies are intensely chocolatey, packed with melted dark chocolate, cocoa and dark chocolate chunks and are sure to cure whatever ails you.  The smoked sea salt cuts through the richness and really amplifies the chocolate flavour, while the smokey element elevates these flourless chocolate cookies to another level altogether.

Sorry to hear you have been sick Jennifer. Hope you are on the up now. These are awesome, and a good use for the smoked sea salt I just purchased. I never thought to combine smoke & chocolate but love both. Beautiful photos as always :)

Well this looks interesting – going to try with pink salt, not a smoked anything fan! also just a quick question – I have a couple of kilos of couverture chocolate buttons and was wondering what to do with them – are they only for coating things with, or can I put them in this biscuit for instance?

OMG!!! This is heaven sent. I don’t even bake but I soooo making this cookie and it seems pretty easy. Do you think I can obtain the same sweetness using coconut sugar or Agave? Trying to stay away from white sugar and brown sugar.
