Craving Crushing Cookies

chocolate cookies

I’m not going to make this unnecessarily wordy or overly complicated.  I had a cookie need.  I filled it.  Now I’m going to share it with you.

These white and dark chocolate chunk cookies, with the addition of almonds, will be a family pleasing treat indeed.

So get that oven warmed up, apron on and mixing bowl on standby.  This one’s gonna be yummy!

1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup dark chocolate chunks
1 cup white chocolate chunks
1/8 cup almonds chopped

Preheat oven to 350F

Chop chocolate into chunks, or use your favourite chocolate bars.  I used Lindt dark chocolate and white chocolate bars.  The white chocolate bar already had almonds in, so I didn’t add any separately.

Cream together the sugar and butter.  Once light and fluffy looking, add in the eggs and vanilla.

Mix in the flour, baking soda and salt, then fold in chopped chocolate and almonds.  Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets.  Do not over crowd the pan as the cookies will spread.  Keep dough chilled between batches.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes in a preheated 350F oven until lightly golden.  They will look slightly under baked.  Remove and let set up on cookie sheet for another 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Pour a tall glass of cold milk and enjoy.  Nom!

    Another yummy one. I just discovered your website and I am enjoying your recipes and beautiful pictures. Where did the name Salt Tree come from? I haven’t gone to the store yet to look for the vanilla drinkable yogurt for your apple oat muffins but while I’m there I might as well pick up the ingredients for this recipe also 😉 Any ideas what I can do with some peppermints left over from Christmas? no one eats them as is here in my house. I made peppermint popcorn during the holidays, which I loved, but I over did it and ate way too much of that stuff so I won’t be having that until next Christmas.

      Thanks for stopping by, Angelica! If you can’t find the drinkable yogurt, you can substitute milk for the muffins. These cookies are totally worth getting the ingredients for 😉

      As for peppermints, I assume you mean the hard candies? Popcorn sounds yummy! You could crush them and use them as a garnish / topper on cupcakes, cake, hot chocolate, ice cream or cookies…. as an additive / flavour for baking, like adding them to a chocolate cake, add them to rice crispie treats… you could also use crushed ones to rim cocktail glasses for sweeter cocktails. Hope that helps!

    Those are some delicious looking cookies. I certainly wish that I hadn’t sworn off desserts until my daughter’s birthday party on the 9th of March. Silly me. I’m constantly seeing yummy looking recipes like these and wishing I could make them. Pinning for next month!

    I’d be tickled if you’d link up at this week’s Off the Hook!
