Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

 Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

I love chocolate and cookies with dark chocolate chips and nuts are a favorite of mine. I baked these cookies when visiting my in-laws. The cookies were so tender and cake like almost and full of rich chocolate flavor and not too sweet. The finely chopped walnuts gave the cookies a great crunch. The recipe comes from the back of the bag of Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips. 

Yield: 2 1/2 Dozen Cookies


2 cups All-Purpose Flour

1/2 cup Hershey's Cocoa

1 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 teaspoon Coarse Salt

3/4 cup Sugar

3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar, packed

1 cup (2 sticks) Unsalted Butter, softened

2 Large Eggs

1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1 package (12 oz.) Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips

1 cup Walnuts, finely chopped (optional)


Heat oven to 375°F.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In a medium size bowl, whisk together granulated sugar and light brown sugar; set aside.

Using a mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed, cream sugars and butter until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes.

Add eggs one at a time, vanilla extract, and mix on medium speed until incorporated.

Turn to low speed, and gradually add flour mixture and mix until combined.

With a spatula, fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.

Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, form and place dough balls on baking sheets spacing 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are set.

Wait 3 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool or if you are like me enjoy some cookies warm.
