Chocolate and more chocolate..


The good life!

Chocolate goodness
My helper testing the melted
chocolate.
This week for TWD Claudia of Fool For Food http://www.foolforfood.de/index.php chose Chocolate Chunkers. These were a very chocolate filled cookie. I halved the recipe and froze the dough until next week. I am on my taper for the marathon http://www.usafmarathon.com/ this week and am avoiding extra sugar and sweets.
This is dough is mainly melted chocolate, chocolate chips, more chocolate and nuts. My daughter helped me make them. We added the peanuts, skor chips and melted dagoba dark chocolate. I omitted the raisins in the cookie. After Anna tried the batter she decided there was too much chocolate in them. My kids must take after there Dad because I have never tasted anything with too much chocolate before. I can't wait until next week to try these cookies.
We had severe wind storms on Sunday and the schools have been without power for the week. That means no school for the kiddos. I am hoping that life will be back to normal in the morning.

Wow - so much willpower to make these and not have any! I've been using my half marathon training as an excuse to eat a lot more goodies than I would normally :) Good luck in the marathon!

Good luck with the marathon! And always think of the gratification cookie after the run.
How in the heck did you make these and not eat them!!! You are GOOD! I am so excited for your marathon. I will be thinking of you the whole time.

Yeah...too much chocolate? Maybe they are getting sick.

Glad those storms didn't get your new house!

Your restraint is impressive! These are definitely worth the wait. Good luck on your marathon! My husband runs marathons. I stand at the finish line cheering.

I'm glad you liked the pizza dough recipe. Using whole wheat flour is a great idea. :)

Best wishes for the marathon! These will be worth waiting for -- they are indeed very chocolate-y. As some other folks have said, they're grown-up cookies!
