Oh my God!!! That's my first reaction after tasting these cookies. If like cookies, you're going to love these cookies! If you're a chocoholic, you're really going to love these cookies! If you're a browniedan, you're definetely going to love these cookies! Thank you Claudia of Fool for Food, for picking this recipe!
Since I get a headache from bittersweet chocolate I only used this for the melting chocolate part. For the chunks of chocolate in these Chunkers I used milk chocolate and white chocolate. Besides all of the chocolate I also opted to use pecans and golden raisins.
I must admit: I had my worries when I saw the batter after adding all the chocolate, pecans and raisins. I couldn't imagine that this lumpy mess would be cookies that would hold their shape. But they turned out great!!
To protect myself from eating all the Chocolate Chunkers I took them to work. My colleagues absolutely adored them: the entire tin was empty by 2 pm!! Some reactions were: OMG, this is the best cookie ever!! What are you doing to us? Where can I buy these cookies? How can I get my fix after you leave? (I got a new job and start there the 3rd of November... I think some of my colleagues are actually going to miss the baking more than they are going to miss me!! ;))
Since my crappy old camera refuses to cooperate with me right now my pictures will follow later. (Don't get too excited, they will look horrible and very dark as it is a really crappy camera!!! :()
Check out the results of my co-bakers at TWD. If you want to start making these wonderful recipes, please consider buying Baking:From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. So far it is the best cookbook that I have bought!!
Dad's verdict: 9,5 out of 10.N.B. Out of all the pictures I took only one is OK enough to be published.... But still crappy!!!
