Original recipe makes 4 dozen Change Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This should take about 10 minutes! Add the eggs one at a time and mix to incorporate. Add the vanilla and mix thoroughly.
  3. In a 1 gallon plastic food bag, place the all-purpose flour, baking soda, kosher salt and cocoa powder. Seal the bag and massage the ingredients to combine. The mixture will appear homogenous with no separate ingredients showing.
  4. Add the flour and cocoa mix to the creamed butter and sugar. Mix together until the dough appears completely combined - about 3 minutes. Add all the walnuts and chocolate chips and stir them into the dough. Drop by two teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Or roll into balls, place about two inches apart on the sheet, and flatten slightly with your fingers.
  5. Bake for 11 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). The cookies will appear to be just barely firm with a sheen to their surfaces. Allow to cool on the sheet for about one minute before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store in airtight containers.

Really good. Great the next day and stay soft! I used regular salted butter (I cut out a little of the kosher salt) and omitted the nuts- still great. Don't let these over cook! 11 minutes is just enough, let them finish on the cookie sheet outside of the oven for about 2-3 minutes.

meh, these were just okay. I made a couple of adjustments: 3/4 C sugar 3/4 C brown sugar, 1/2 C butter 1/2 C shortening. I mean these are good cookies but not as good as other recipes I've used on this site.

I followed the recipe except for not adding in the nuts. Next time I will cut back on the chocolate chips. I used the hand roll method since there were so many chocolate chips it was impossible to do the spoon method with the chips falling off the dough. Definitely worth the effort because the cookies tasted fabulous. This recipe will be a keeper!

These cookies were soft and chocolatey. The only thing I would change next time is to use regular salt instead of kosher. The salt taste was a bit too noticeable and I think it's because the kosher salt didn't blend as well as the other kind would've. Otherwise very yummy!

These were the best cookies I think I have ever made....I made these over the Christmas holiday and they were a hit everywhere I took them. I even had to hide them from my husband. The only change I made was that I used chocolate chunks instead of chips. Didn't have the chips on hand. After I have tried these with the chunks I will only use chunks. With chunks you get more chocolate anyway. These cookies remind me of a brownie cookie more than a cake cookie though. I think you should give this a try. This has become a staple in my house!!!

Exactly as promised - chocolatey, cakey goodness. I was worried the dough would be too soft and spread (it's really sticky) but it didn't... I did substitute two teaspoons of mint flavouring for the vanilla and used mint chips instead of chocolate, and omitted the nuts 'cause I couldn't think which ones would taste good with mint and chocolate. Wonderful cookies - I made them large so I only got 2 dozen.

Wow! These are way better than I thought they'd be. Im not a huge cookie fan, but I needed a way to use up some walnuts, (my mom has a very prolific walnut tree). I didnt think they were overly sweet or anything. They are better the next day, nice and chewy. Make sure you have milk though, these cookies beg for it!

Oh baby!!! I have tinkered and experimented with other cookie recipes and this one really is the best. Mine didn't flatten as they baked so they came out really ugly...but who cares when they taste like this! My only change was to reduce the chocolate chips to 1 cup since I also crammed in a cup of walnuts. Enough talk...must get another cookie!!!
