Laura Brody's chocolate phantoms
It was time for chocolate, and these cookies looked very promising with the macadamia nuts and all. I have to say, when I was making the batter (that is mainly chocolate, just an oz of flour!) I kept thinking they were more of a fancy candy than a cookie. I used a combo of 55% and 70% chocolate because I didn't want them to turn out too sweet. I must say that this was *fabulous*. Very chocolatey, not sweet, lots of nuts, and slightly chewy. When I open the container I stored them in, the chocolate smell is overwhelming. But then, what else could you expect of a recipe that calls for an lb of chocolate?
We both rated them 8 out of ten. Very, very good!
