Chocolate Chunk Cookies (One Bowl)

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Cat..atude

These truly chocolate cookies are scrumptious. Made entirely in one bowl and using the microwave for ease and speed. I found this recipe in our local grocery flyer. The batter is very runny and I was sceptical to say the least, but the results are amazing. Watch closely as I did burn my first batch!!!

The final product with some adjustments turned out perfectly but as written would not have worked. There seems a huge need for more flour. As written the recipe batter is very runny - almost like a brownie/cake batter and would never have held shape. I added an additional cup plus a bit more to get this to set up enough to make a drop cookie. Due to adding more flour I also added an additional 1/4 tsp baking powder so I did not affect how the cookies would rise. After these adjustments the cookies turned out fine baking for 10 minutes (use parchment paper). I received 48 cookies. The taste is nicely chocolately and the pecans really add a nice touch. Overall an easy recipe but the measurements really need to be looked at again. Thanks! Made for Bargain Basement tag game in the Cooking Games with Friends forum.
