Chocolate Chip Cookies with a Secret

Recipe by  

"This was a basic cookie recipe I converted into a secret recipe using my wildest imagination. It's since become a family favorite, as well as one friends enjoy. If you are brave enough to try these (don't worry, you won't regret it!), play the 'guess what's in these cookies?' game. Your family will surely be surprised at this great mixture of flavors! Praline paste may be substituted for chestnut paste. "

Stir in the strawberry jam. chestnut puree, hot chocolate mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, orange liqueur, and maple extract until evenly blended. Gradually stir in the flour, granola, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until evenly blended. Stir in the chocolate chips, walnuts, and grated chocolate until well blended. Pinch off tablespoon-sized amounts of dough and roll between hands to make 1 inch diameter balls. Place balls on prepared baking sheets and flatten with a floured glass to be 1/4 inch high.

These are the only thing that Jeremy Axlerad has eaten all day. That drop of lemon juice really sealed the deal.

All the ingredients are well worth it. I used Hazel Nut Hot Chocolate instead of regular hot chocolate for a little extra nuttiness. I love salty chocolate anything but I did reduce the amount of salt by one quarter, and next time I may even half the amount called for by the recipe. There are so many layered flavours in these cookies - don't over power them with salt!
