Chocolate Chubby Cookies with Pecans & Walnuts
Nothing says “I love you” like a rich chocolate dessert. These are based off of a New York favorite called Chubbies. With cocoa, and both bar chocolate and chips for depth, plus an abundance of toasted nuts, these are certain to become a new favorite. They’re truly irresistible.
Melt bittersweet chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat until nearly smooth; cool slightly. Whisk together flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt.
Beat eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and almond extract in a bowl with a hand mixer on medium speed until thickened, 2 minutes. Beat in chocolate mixture, then flour mixture. Stir in pecans, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Cover dough and chill at least 2 hours, or up to 1 day.
Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Drop ½-oz. dough balls (generous 2 tsp.) onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 2-inches apart. Bake cookies until still slightly soft, 10–11 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets, 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
