Very, very good! Next time, however, I will just use chocolate chips. I made five batches of this for Christmas cookie trays, and chopping all of that baking chocolate was really a pain. Chocolate chips would taste just as good.

Great with or without nuts!

I've been making a version of this for a long time. The only thing I do different is omit the peppermint flavoring and add mint choc chips. It's really good

Delicious! I slightly increased the amount of peppermint extract. Next time, I might add mint flavored chips instead of plain chocolate.

We modified a bit. Added mint M&Ms rather than chocolate chips. Also pulverized candy canes into a course sugar and rolled the dough ball in the coating before cooking. Also, no walnuts. Awesome!

Added Andes mints to this recipe and big hit!

Came out perfect. Aside from omitting the nuts I dropped the dough using a 2 tsp spoon and not by the tbs.

These were good! Used soft whole wheat flour and rapadura sugar to make them a bit on the healthier side.
