This recipe gives 24 big cookies. This recipe comes from the tv show A la Di Stasio.
- 7 ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
- 1⁄3 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2⁄3 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
- 3⁄4 cup grilled nuts, roughly chopped (pecans, walnuts, cashews, macadam)
- Preheat oven at 350°F In a double-boiler, melt the first quantity of chocolate (7 ounce) and butter at low heat.
- With a mixer, beat eggs, sugar and brown sugar for 2 minutes. Add vanilla and beat well.
- Add melted chocolate and beat 1 minute.
- Sift the dry ingredients. Add to the chocolate mixture. Add the chopped chocolate and nuts. Fold delicately.
- On a baking sheet with parchment paper, put 2 tablespoon of mixture, leaving 1 1/2 inch between each cookies. Flatten lightly.
- Bake in the third part of the oven 9 to 11 minutes. The sides will be crunchy and the center still soft. Don’t cook the cookies too much because they will keep on cooking out of the oven, that way they will stay soft when cold. Let them cool a little bit before touching them, then cool completely on a rack.
You love chocolate? Then you are about to die and go to chocolate heaven. This was easy easy easy and can easily be done by a beginner . I used both brown and white splenda and it was wonderful. I have had a least 1 dream about these morsels and can not wait for the next batch. I did cook them 5 minutes more than the recipe called for. I now pronounce them the best chocolate cookies ever.

Chocolate heaven all in a cookie! I received 22 very large cookies which have a nice crunchy outer coating and a soft inside! I used chopped macadamia nuts and boy these were such a great addition! I'll definitely be making these cookies again and again! Thanks Boomette for sharing your recipe! Tagged in Potluck Tag game.
Wonderful cookies, indeed! I used semi-sweet chocolate and omitted the 2nd addition of chocolate. Stil very decadent. I also omitted the nuts to make the cookies school friendly (nuts not allowed in school). I made 21 cookes of which 9 were HUGE; they spread out quite a bit. Certainly not the last time I have made these little pieces of heaven. Made for Every day is a Holiday.
