We start with cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder.
Then move on to unsweetened chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, and butter.
Sugar, eggs, and vanilla are also involved.
And then, there are the mix-ins. More bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate, toasted almonds, and a dried fruit mix. (I substituted the almonds for peanuts and the dried fruit for raisins). I skipped the white chocolate because, well, it's not chocolate.
There was a lot going on in this cookie. I did discover that this is one of the few Dorie cookies that does not benefit from a little trip to the fridge. Since the "dough" is largely chocolate, it made it difficult to scoop. You'll notice the quotes around the word dough because there was little if anything holding all the mix-ins together.
Here is a finished cookie. It was good. It was also very rich. This was not a snacking cookie. And it definitely required milk. Truth be told, it was on the expensive side as well. I made more cookies than the original recipe stated, but I'm pretty sure I made them smaller than Dorie called for. I don't think I'll rush out and make these again any time soon. I just wasn't that into them.
Up next week: Dimply Plum Cake chosen by Michelle of Bake-en. Much as I've loved all the cookies, I'm excited to do something else.
