TWD: Chocolate Chunkers

Dorie Greenspan... I love you! My waistline may eventually begin to dislike you, but me, I love you!

This cookie is going down as my favorite cookie EVER! I don't know if I am going to share them. I may keep them all to myself. Selfish, I know. But they are so good!

This is definately a chocolate lovers dream cookie. Very rich and almost brownie-like. The recipe calls for 5 different types of chocolate, nuts, and raisins. The idea of raisins in this cookie didn't appeal to me, so I subbed an additional chocolate for the raisins. So, this cookie has cocoa powder, unsweetened chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, and toasted pecans. Oh.... my.... gosh! Amazing! I will make these again and again and again and again and again and... oh, you get the point!

Thank you Claudia of Fool for Food for choosing this superb recipe! Head over to her blog for the recipe and don't forget to check out the TWD blogroll to see what creative things these talented bakers did!

that made me laugh - subbed a different chocolate for the raisins. my kind of substitution! what else does chocolate need, besides more chocolate, anyway?! i love the idea of toasted pecans; since i always use pecans, i went ahead and stuck with dorie's salted peanuts for a change of pace, but i wish i'd stuck with pecans. that's a great photo -

Those look like puddles of fudge! Yummy! I only have half a batch so I wouldn't eat too many of them!!

Did you post your birthday cake? Because PB and chocolate is my favorite combination!

Nothing like additional chocolate to take these even farther over the top. I'm glad you found a favorite!

Good job! I'm pleased you are a fan - I am also going to make them again but as they are pretty pricey I think only over a Holiday season.

OOOwww...those look so rich and chocolatey! I will definitely head over to Claudia of Fool for Food to get the recipe. This looks like the perfect cookie to make for my brother who is away at college. Thanks for the heads up.

Happy belated birthday! I wouldn't share those either if I was you!!
