Once again, it is time for the Tuesday with Dorie bakers to gather and discuss this week’s recipe. Claudia, of Fool for Food, chose a very rich, over-the-top chocolate cookie this week: Chocolate Chunkers. Five kinds of chocolate went into these babies! Even halving the recipe, I ended up with 24 cookies and they are so powerful, eating one or two is the best one can do. The only substitution I made this week was to use currants instead of raisins. They added the fruity taste without overpowering the other ingredients.
The other interesting thing about these cookies is the end result. As I write this, I’ve already peeked at some early posts, and I swear not one of them looks like the others. Did we all use the same recipe? I’m always amazed by the diversity of the final cookie.
Note: I will be taking my overdue vacation this coming week, so there will be no post about the Dimply Plum Cake. I did happen to make it some months ago, and if you like plums, it’s a good recipe. I liked the cake part best.
