Chewy chocolate chews

I found these cookies to be very moist, chewy and easy to make. I put the dough in the refrigerator for a few hours; that made them easier to drop. I also added chocolate chips instead of nuts. This is a keeper for my family.


Good without nuts

These were a big hit at my work. Instead of nuts I added candy coated chocolate pieces.

Choc Chews

They were so easy to make & my crowd just loved them. Next time I will have to bake 2 batches because they were so ummy & the coconut did the trick!

Chocolatey but fragile

Intense chocolate flavor. Once baked and cooled, I found these cookies to be extremely fragile.

Chocolate Chews

Not my favorite, too chocolatey. I took them to work and for the most part, people liked them. For those of you who like an intense chocolate flavor, this is the cookie for you.
