Good quality chocolate and baking these cookies until they “almost” look done is the key for success when making these irresistible full-of-gooey-chocolate-goodness chocoholic’s dream cookie.
Now let’s play my factual statement game!
Fact: I love a good chocolate cookie.
Fact: I’d rather have chocolate chunks in my cookies than chocolate chips
Fact: I didn’t want to post a chocolate cookie recipe because the internet is saturated with them.
Fact: Everyone thinks their chocolate cookie recipe is the best 🙂
Fact: Grandma’s chocolate cookies are the best – NOPE, not in my case! I don’t remember my grandma baking chocolate cookies ever! She actually didn’t bake a lot.
Fact: These Fudgy and Nutty Double Chocolate Cookies made me change my mind about posting chocolate cookie recipes on my blog! Yup! That’s for sure!
As I mentioned before, good quality chocolate is important. One of my favorite chocolates is Callebaut closely followed by Scharffen Berger however, I couldn’t find those in my area (the fact is, I was too lazy to drive more than a few miles and I wanted chocolate satisfaction immediately!). This time I used Ghirardelli and the cookies turned out delicious!
These Fudgy and Nutty Double Chocolate Cookies are very easy to make. They don’t require any cooling time after mixing the ingredients. Just drop a spoonful on a sheet pan and bake.
Double Chocolate Cookie Recipe Tips
- If you prefer, you can use walnuts instead of pecans.
- This recipe calls for only 1/4 cup of flour, for that reason the “dough” is sticky and gooey. The only thing really holding these cookies together is chocolate chips and nuts – how bad could that be?
- Time is everything when baking these Fudgy and Nutty Double Chocolate Cookies. Keep a close eye on them.
- I like Medaglia de Oro Instant Espresso Coffee for baking.
