Ok guys, I can confidently say that these cookies are the best ever. Truly. These are the best chocolate chunk cookies in the world and I'd be willing to stake my life on it. Not only are they the most delectable, chocolaty-chunky morsels ever, they're also incredibly effortless to make. All you have to do is mix, roll and bake. Et voila. The only problem you may encounter is finding the will to stop yourself from devouring the entire tray. Especially when they come out of the oven and are at their most irresistible. Warm, molten and gooey. How does one resist such temptation? 

The original recipe called for walnuts. And if you're anything like myself you would have been thinking, "ewww, walnuts". I did contemplate substituting them for something significantly less bland and more flavourful like pecan nuts but thankfully I did not. Somehow those earthy tones walnuts emanate pair well in this cookie. You get the crunch and texture from these nuts and all sans that awful insipidness that I associate walnuts with. Best of all they reduce the overall sweetness, making all that chocolaty goodness more prominent for your taste buds. It's actually a perfect pairing. Who knew?

That said, am I walnut convert? Probably not. Would I consider using them again? In this recipe, hell yes. In others? Probably not.

What can I say, I'm stubborn when it comes to certain dislikes, especially concerning food.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 INGREDIENTS: 
125g butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
180g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
30g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 180°C / 356°F and line two baking trays with baking paper.
Beat butter and sugar until well combined.
Add the egg and vanilla essence and beat until thoroughly incorporated.
Add flour and mix well using a wooden spoon then add the chocolate and walnuts.
Roll mixture into large walnut sized balls and place on the baking tray, leaving a space of 3cm between each ball.
Flatten slightly with the underside of a spoon.
Bake for around 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Allow cookies to rest and completely cool

  7. Oh yum these sound so good! It's good to know you didn't mind the addition of the walnuts either, as they wouldn't be my first choice for chocolate chip cookies, so its' great to hear you recommend them.

    They look so tasty and I totally want a cookie now haha!

  51. These cookies look so divine, it looks like you could open a cookie shop. Nobody but us would know how easy it is to make it. I love how the chocolate looks so chunky and are made from real chocolate chunks and not choco chips. I've not seen any choco cookie like yours before. I think leaving the walnut there is a good choice. I can already imagine the balance.

    About your previous post, I hate how time is passing too quickly. Seriously, where did all the time go? It makes me so sad just thinking about how fleeting time is.

    RYC:
    Sonia, I had to google "Miss Delevingne" to realize I know who this model is w/o knowing her name. I think her eyebrows are GREAT! One thick eyebrows (that's shaped) but I absolutely dislike is Lily Collins as Snow White in Mirror Mirror. Each time I looked at her, I want to tweeze her eyebrows. She looks so pretty now and from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones onwards. Still thick eyebrows but a lot thinner than Mirror Mirror. I know what you mean by that Nike tick shape. Initially I didn't but after you described it, I know. Did the professionals even think those were nice? I get that it fit some people but it doesn't fit many who sport that shape too. It seems like from the comments here, many of you have got trust issues about letting others do your brows. For me, I would try to shape as much as possible by myself until it gets too unruly before going for threading. The shape for threading usually turned out well just that my brows would be a lot thinner and also the unsymmetrical shape would still be there. Blame my natural brows!

  61. I have no doubt whatsoever that these cookies are the best. They look it. I'm not a fan of dark chocolate so I'd probably use white chocolate. Great idea to use walnuts Sonia. Would love to try this recipe soon. I'm excited. http://fashionablyidu.blogspot.com/
