My Ultimate Chocolate Cookies recipe is enough to make my mouth water. These chewy drop cookies are pure decadent pleasure in food form that are overloaded with chocolate from unsweetened cocoa and are quite easy to make. They also have extra chew from chopped walnuts along with white chocolate chips to set off the flavor of the chocolate, making an unbeatable combination that is spectacular tasting.
What is it about chocolate that makes it so tempting? Maybe it is due to those “feel-good” chemicals it contains that brings out instant happiness. Perhaps, my obsession with anything chocolate is merely due to the chemical reaction that is triggered in the brain as those endorphins, dopamine and serotonin floods the system. Whatever the cause, I can’t imagine a more perfect sweet satisfaction than chocolate related like my Ultimate Chocolate Cookies recipe.

Ultimate Chocolate Cookies
1-3/4 cups of sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/3 cup of white chocolate chips
1-1/4 cups of butter or shortening
2 cups of sifted flour
3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon of baking soda, leveled
½ teaspoons of salt
1 cup of finely chopped walnuts
In your mixing bowl, cream your softened butter or shortening with the sugar.
Beat in your eggs and vanilla, one at a time, to your creamed ingredients.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
Slowly stir in the sifted ingredients and combine well with the creamed mixture.
Stir in the chopped nuts and chips last.
Spoon out the cookie dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Don’t make these cookies too big because they puff out and expand. This recipe needs plenty of room.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for about eight or nine minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.
These are soft and puffy when the baking time is finished. Test with a toothpick to see if anything sticks to see if they are done. You might be tempted to return them to the oven, but they firm up after cooling for a few minutes.
Remove them from the pan after those few minutes of cooling to a wire rack or plate to cool more before storing.
