TWD Rewind - Chunkers


For the TWD rewind this month, I have made Chunkers.  Both the name and the appearance of these cookies are a little unfortunate, but the taste is not - oh so good.

Chunkers are fat chocolate cookies packed with cashews, chocolate and dried cherries (or in my case, glace cherries).  I only made a half batch and still got 18 cookies. There is 600g of chocolate in a whole batch so you can understand why I only made half.  (Not to mention that cashews are very expensive here - ouch.)

Biting into these cookies was a lovely experience - chewy outside, soft centre with ooey gooey chocolate pieces inside.  Yum!

To see what the others made for the rewind, visit the LYL section of the Tuesdays with Dorie website.

it's good to see food on blogs that don't look good but taste good to remind us it isn't all about beauty when it comes to food! I am sure I would enjoy these

I actually think your cookies look perfect Gaye - despite your (and other) comments! They are not the most attractive but they look exactly like you'd expect a "chunker" to look! I'll be making these again for special occasions :)

Yum! Definitely something to make in a half portion though as I suspect it would be dangerous otherwise ;)

Hehe that name! But they do sound good, mainly because of the amount of chocolate in them too! :D

I agree with you Yum. I also made much more than the recipe stated. We love chocolate so these were a big hit in our house.

Well isn't this sinful! :-) Chunkers works for me all because of the cashews and cherries. Have to try this!

Yes the name is rather unfortunate and they don’t look exciting, but if they taste wonderful you can forgive them anything!!
