How can you go wrong with this much chocolate packed into one recipe? And chances are you already have most of the ingredients on hand.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a heavy saucepan; cook, stirring often, over low heat until chocolate melts. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

Step 2

Beat eggs and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth; add chocolate mixture, beating well.

Step 3

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to chocolate mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in chocolate morsels, pecans, and walnuts.

Step 4

Drop batter by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheets.

Step 5

Bake at 325° for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. Cool cookies on baking sheet 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool.

Note to those allergic to nuts: Omitting the nuts will not hurt the recipe! The only time you MUST use nuts in a recipe is when the recipe requires the nuts be ground finely as in almond crescents or a similar recipe. This particular recipe is excellent with or without nuts, particularly if you are a chocoholic!

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...

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.

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.

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

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.

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!
