TWD Chocolate Chunkers

I think this week's recipe for Tuesday's With Dorie should have been called Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Chunkers! Why? Because there are so many different kinds of chocolate ingredients in these cookies! I was adding the dry ingredients to the batter when my husband walked by and said, "I think you need to add some milk or something..." Ha ha and that was before I even added all the chocolate chips and peanuts...oh, but NOT the raisens! I'm not a raisen fan, and since I'm the baker....what I say....goes! (or doesn't!)

Here is the batter ready to be plopped onto the cookie sheet!
What's that? You want to see it a little closer? Mmmm...
Everyone all lined up to head to the hot box!
Ta-Da!
I really did like these. They were very chocolate-y, no complaints, but next time I'll take the time to wash my Pampered Chef chopper and chop up the peanuts a little bit instead of just dumping them in whole...that was me being lazy!

Thank you Claudia from Fool For Food for chosing this recipe this week!

i agree with your name suggestion for these! i roughly chopped my peanuts but still wish i'd chopped them a little smaller.

I whizzed my peanuts in the food processor, which really helped. And I was surprised - the raisins were actually a really tasty addition to these.

Maci said...

I didn't put the raisins in either...they were still amazing!

Peggy said...

I think the peanuts whole would be great in there! Of course, I like chunky stuff.

I left the raisins out too and I didn't chop my peanuts either! These were awesome cookies!

Pamela said...

I'm not crazy about baked raisins either, but I did use Craisins and enjoyed them in this cookie. These were just such awesome little things!

I agree these were so filled with chocolate and more chocolate! I wanted to add dried apricots but got out voted in my house. Looks delicious!

Maya said...

Yours look really good with the peanuts in them! :) I left them out, but I don't like nuts!
