This recipe (from Bon Appetit) appeared in the cooking section of our paper last Wednesday, and after reading the description, I knew I must make them. They live up to the hype... "there are times when too much of a good thing is never enough, when the entire bag of chocolate chips you have stuffed in the cupboard, ostensibly for baking, only serves to intensify your craving and ratchet up your crazy factor. I'd demand one of these cookies for my last supper. Let's be clear: you don't waste these cookies on your kids. You make them for a dinner party for a bunch of foodie friends"... I even loved the BATTER of these cookies, and the cookies were as delicious, as promised. However, a friend made a batch, substituting some ingredients and they were too cloyingly sweet....using premium dark chocolate is key! The original recipe did not include chocolate chips, and the food writer made the addition of walnuts optional. I added both, but instead of chips, I used chunks of the same quality chocolate that I used in the batter. This was my favourite new recipe this season..chocolate nirvana!
