This week’s TWD was chosen by Claudia of Fool for Food: chocolate chunkers! These cookies are a chocolate lover’s dream. They’re a combination of cocoa powder, chocolate (bittersweet, semisweet, milk and white!!), raisins and nuts. As I mentioned last week when we made the Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops, I’m not generally a fan of chocolate based cookies so I wasn’t sure I’d like these. That said, I LOVED the chocolate malted whopper drops, so I thought there was hope.

I made a few minor changes to this recipe. First, I made only half of the original recipe. Too many chocolate cookies = too much temptation at our house if we end up liking them. Also, I didn’t use any bittersweet chocolate in the recipe. I substituted semisweet chocolate instead. I also left the nuts out since I really don’t like nuts in cookies. I baked these for about 13 minutes which is definitely at the top of the range Dorie recommends, but I wanted to make sure they weren’t going to fall apart when I tried to move them to the cooling rack since there’s so little dough holding them together.

I nibbled on one cookie fresh from the oven and thought they were ok. I can definitely see myself making them again for company or as an occasional treat, but they won’t be a go-to recipe. It was just a bit too much chocolate for me. Shane did however like them more than the chocolate malted whopper drops so I guess it’s just a matter of personal preference. Check out Claudia’s blog if you’re curious about the recipe and head over to TWD to see how the rest of the cookies turned out!
