Chocolate Chunkers -Tuesdays with Dorie


This weeks recipe was chosen by Claudia of Fool for Food. Thank you Claudia. I've just consumed a Chunker - really scrumptious! A very rich chocolate cookie, somewhat like a candy bar.

They came together nicely in the preparation and, surprisingly, formed into drop cookies without falling apart. I thought they would fall apart considering there are so many chunky ingredients in them and very little flour. Right now they are packed for taking to work tomorrow. The dough makes quite a lot of cookies - I got 40 out of mine and that's with using quite generous tablespoons.

For the recipe, please check out Claudia's blog.

i do agree with you on the candy bars similarity. Pity mine had only pistachios and chocolate chips and salted peanuts in it. Nothing to glamorous. Yet stil enjoyable. Great that you managed to get so many cookies out of the batter!

I got over 40 too - glad I'm not the only one! And the size they ended up was perfect to eat one. Just one. I'm going to bet your coworkers will love these!

Oh, look at those chunksters sitting all pretty on that flowered plate and pink cloth. All dressed up! These things were very true to their bar-o'-chocolate origins.

Candy bar you say? Well maybe if Dorie had described it like that I would have been more diligent to make them! I am craving a Snickers like no other right now. LOL. Glad you liked the cookies!

Yes, they were indeed like a candy bar. So yummy!

I made smaller cookies too and liked them that way.
