TWD - Chocolate Chunkers

This week's recipe was chosen by Claudia of Fool for Food. After sitting out a few weeks (due to increased poundage!) I made these last week. I must have made them smaller than called for because I yielded almost 4 dozen - which is fine. I tasted two and thought they were quite delicious. My husband has "hidden" them to avoid temptation. He prefers your old fashioned chocolate chip cookie, but thought these were good. In fact, the first day he ate too many (they are small after all) and ended up with a tummy ache!

These cookies are actually more add-ins than batter. Thus, their name, Chocolate Chunkers, is quite accurate.


They didn't look much different before they went in the oven



than when they came out



I didn't have the amount of bittersweet chocolate so I just made up the difference with semi-sweet. I didn't have any white chips, so I just subb'd semi-sweet chips. I had exactly one cup of walnuts, so I threw these in. DH does not like raisins in cookies, so left those out. So basically this is are Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunkers!

Yours look like little bundles of chocolate goodness. Gotta love the semisweet. I prefer it to milk or white chocolate, actually. 4 dozen means you can just have a little sample now and then!

Hiding them is sometimes the only solution to cookies like these. Glad you liked them!

Great looking Chunkers! I also got a lot out of the batter - 40 cookies to be precise. They are delicious aren't they!

I just wanted to let you know that I hear you about the increased poundage! I have to get a hold of myself. The cookies look really good.

Yes, the plate is pretty isn't it - I picked it up at a church jumble sale in Boston over the weekend. Am a real sucker for fancy plates and teacups.

I made littler ones too, I think it's a good idea! These are just too good!

Hey! I never heard of chocolate chunkers, something I will have to try at some point. I am not a huge fan of walnuts, so perhaps I will substitute with hazelnut. What do you think?
