Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Chunkers

We have another cookie this week for Tuesdays with Dorie!  Claudia of Fool for Food has chosen the Chocolate Chunkers, found on page 70.  Dorie describes them as very chocolaty, and I definitely agree!  These cookies contain bittersweet chocolate, semisweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and milk or white chocolate.  With so much chocolate, how can you go wrong?  I have to say that I like these just as much as last week’s Whopper Cookies, but they are different.  I found these cookies to be brownie-like, as they were more fluffy than chewy. Reading the Problems & Questions section on the blog this week was pretty entertaining.   I think we all agreed that while these cookies are amazing, they are not the prettiest dessert!

This is one of my favorite chocolate cookies, and I would definitely make them again.  The recipe is very adaptable for various mix-ins.  Dorie uses nuts (she suggests peanuts or pecans) and either white chocolate or milk chocolate chips, and also raisins.  I decided to just use a bunch of white chocolate chips since that’s what I was in the mood for when I made them.  I love the combination of white chocolate chips with a chocolate cookie.  It is also important to use good chocolate in these since the chocolate flavor is so dominant.  Thanks Claudia for a wonderful selection.  You have helped me find a great chocolate cookie to make again and again.  Next week we’ll be taking a break from the cookies (not that I really want or need one!) and will make a fall-ish treat, as Michelle of Bake-en has chosen the Dimply Plum Cake.  To see other Chocolate Chunkers out there, visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blog.
