“These are brownie-like cookies filled with chunks of nuts and chocolate and can be dipped in chocolate as well. I make these for Christmas and Valentine's Day and get lots of requests for the recipe. These are one of the few cookies I have to get out of my house quickly or I'll eat them all myself.”
4 dozen

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped (3 squares)
  • 12 cup butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 14 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 23 cup flour
  • 12 teaspoon baking powder
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 12 cups walnuts, chopped and toasted
  • 1 12 cups pecans, chopped and toasted
  • 1 12 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional) or 1 12 cups white chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon shortening (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F; spray 3 baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray or line them with parchment paper.
  2. Melt 8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, and butter in the microwave (about 1 1/2 minutes in my microwave) or over double broiler over simmering water. Cool.
  3. Beat eggs with sugar. Beat in chocolate mixture and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into chocolate mixture just until combined. Stir in 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips and nuts. If desired, refrigerate dough until ready to bake.
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake 7-8 minutes, until barely firm and tops are slightly cracked.
  5. Cool on cookies sheets 2 minutes and then transfer to wire racks.
  6. After cookies have cooled, if you would like to make these cookies look extra special, dip them in melted chocolate: Melt chocolate chips (either semi-sweet or white) along with shortening in a small bowl. Dip 1 half of cookie in melted chocolate. Lay onto waxed paper or a wire cookie rack to dry. Sometimes I dip the cookies in semisweet chocolate and then drizzle them with melted white chocolate.
