The cookie of your dreams is HERE.
It’s big. It’s bold. And it’s packed with chocolate. Introducing my Chunky Walnut Chocolate Cookies, otherwise known as the best cookies EVER.
Extra thick, extra gooey and completely irresistible.
I’ve had cookies on my mind for a while now. But I didn’t want to make just any cookie. I wanted a really, really chunky cookie packed with all the good things in life. Perfect for morning tea. Perfect for dessert. Perfect for EVERYTHING.
Reminiscent of a brownie, these thick and chewy chocolate cookies are deliciously lumpy and packed with crunchy walnuts, chunks of white chocolate AND dark chocolate.
Boasting a sticky cookie batter rich with cocoa powder, these choc cookies are perfection. The secret to getting the height and deliciously soft texture of these cookies is a little extra flour and a dash of cornflour.
And the gooey pockets of chocolate?
My secret is chopping a chocolate bar by hand. This ensures each piece is a different size and shape. Meanwhile, the walnuts add flavour and crunch, and also make the cookies delightfully lumpy.
These cookies have come at just the right time, making me very excited for Christmas and the baking season! Tell me, what do you love to bake at this time of year? I’m getting ready to share a few new Christmas recipes with you over the coming weeks. I get seriously excited/obsessed about gingerbread at this time of year.
In the meantime, these Chunky Walnut Chocolate Cookies are going to keep my cookie cravings under control. And yours too. Let’s eat!
