TWD: Chocolate Chunkers

The heaven's are singing! This recipe is amazing. Loads of chocolate!
I do have to say that it is a cardinal sin to combine fruit and chocolate in my book. So NO FRUIT FOR YOU!!!
I changed it a bit though to make it mine. I changed the white chocolate to peanut butter chips (I mean, can you really call white chocolate chocolate?)and added whole wheat flour instead of white. I also didn't have the unsweetened chocolate so I added that 1 oz to the 6 oz of bittersweet and I also used carob chips instead of chocolate chips. I also omitted the nuts because I want my kids to eat these instead of me eating them all. How about I just put the recipe down so you an all see. This dough should just be brownies! It looks like it and tastes like it and I should know because I ate more dough than cookies.
*As I was just typing out the recipe I realized I forgot to add the baking powder and they still turned out amazing. I think I will keep it out from now on!

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate. Beat the eggs and sugar until frothy. Add the vanilla. Add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture and combine well. Add the dry ingredients until combined. Once that is combined then stir in the carob and peanut butter chips. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

I sort of wondered if any leavening would do any good - mine basically didn't rise anyway. They look wonderful.

The dough was wonderful, wasn't it -- very much like a brownie.

I wouldn't have cared for your add-ins at all -- but good for you for making what would please you and your family! With this cookie, I think any mix-in that goes with chocolate would be great. "Mix it up!"
