    I love chocolate and nuts but this almost has too many if that is possible. There are a lot better cookie recipes than this though this one tastes fine.

    Why do these recipes always have nuts in them? I am allergic to nuts and would like to see some recipes without them.

    Really yummy. The dough looks a bit like rice crispy treats but it all turns out right in the oven somehow. I had to bake mine closer to the 15-17 minute mark. Didn't have any unsweetened chocolate so I substituted three tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder for each ounce of unsweetened chocolate.

    Excellent recipe. One note, on the first line of the directions you should use a double boiler or a glass or metal bowl over a saucepan to melt the chocolate to prevent scorching.

    Have made a similar recipe - excellent cookie! Note: For cookies w/o nuts - go to Allrecipes, look up cookies (about 4400 recipes) and look for recipes w/o nuts.

    First time I made this recipe, I misread it and only used three cups of nuts. Have since made it as written --turns out my family prefers the three cup version (less expensive too!). Either way they are wonderful -- just be careful to not over bake.

    Solid recipe as I need a new recipe for Christmas assortment. I added an extra 1/4 cup of flour and played with the nut combination and quantity. I might consider using mini chocolate chips next time instead of regular size ones. Used a small ice cream type scooper for uniformity.

    This is a really good cookie. Definately for the chocolate lover. Followed the recipe, easy to make, and looks just like the picture. I would definately make again.

    I TOTALLY screwed up this recipe! I beat the eggs one by one into the chocolate/butter mix right after it melted because I was distracted and thought I was supposed to add the eggs to that in the first place! The eggs didn't seem to have cooked in the chocolate so, not to waste, I proceeded and they came out DELICIOUS!

    Why don't you just leave the nuts out of this recipe! I'm sure that it will work without...

    These are my husband's all time favorite cookies. I've made them many times for him and for gatherings and everyone loves them.

    Took these to a pot luck dinner - everyone loved them Made no changes to the receipt. They are delicious.

    These are the BEST cookies - one of my favorites and they always disappear off the cookie plate quickly. If you know a chocolate lover - make these for them. They are easy and always come out just like the picture! Yes, they have lots of nuts in them, if you don't like nuts or allergic...pick another cookie but don't rate the recipe low b/c it has nuts and you can't eat them :0!

    I first saw this recipe in some old magazine more than 10 years ago whose name I can't even recall today. I copied the recipe page and have been baking this several times per year since. This year found the identical recipe at My Recipe and have shared the recipe with all my FB friends and let them find out for themselves how delicious these cookies are. I finally can throw away the yellowing, stained page and have a neater copy printed. This is a genuine crowd pleaser (unless one's allergic to nuts and chocolate), it is rich, very chocolatey, a mouthful of nuts to add texture to the cookie. Eating chocolate has been known to produce endorphin, so, yes, one cookie will elevate your mood.

    This was a HIT! My condolences to those allergic to nuts!

    I have been making these cookies since they were first published back in 2001. They never fail to impress and satisfy. They keep well for over a week and I've even shipped them to my brother stationed in Iraq. He said they were still fantastic 3 weeks after I baked them.

    If I wanted to eliminate all the nuts, any suggestions for substitutes? More chocolate???

  • groady Posted: 12/10/12

    Really good and easy. I like chocolate and cherries combined so to half of the batter I added about 1/2 cup chopped dried tart cherries that i had macerated/simmered with ruby port.

    How about the use of Rice Chrispies..for the equivalent of the cups of nuts..Now ..No nuts!..and you still have the crunch!..Less expensive also, if a budget is in question...
