This week’s recipe on page 70 from Baking: From My Home to Yours*: Chocolate Chunkers has been chosen by Claudia from Fool for Food 20.09.2023 **.
To keep the entry short: These are my cookies. Together with a glass of milk they are a complete meal. I followed Dories advice and shopped chocolate by hand, but I am of different opinion about the chocoloate. Excellent – and also expensive – chocolate I prefer to enjoy pure in small quantities.
I used chocolate with 75 % cocoa solids instead of unsweetened chocolate, for the bittersweet I used chocolate with 50 % cocoa solids and for the semisweet I used chocolate with 35 % cocoa solids. I substituted the raisins with dried apricots.
I’ll definitely make these Chocolate Chunkers again!
BTW: Today my husband and I celebrate 25 years „War and Peace“, I am in a hurry!

„These fabulous – I mean truly fabulous – cookies are based on the ones I made when I worked at the long-gone Soho Charcuerie, the cookies were called Chocolate Gobs, and at Sarabeth’s were they continue to be best sellers, they’re called Chocolate Chubs. Both of those versions, as well as these, are grandchildren of Maida Heatter’s great Mulattoes. They’re big, gooey, exceedingly chocolaty. […] Despite their heft, they’re serially snackable. You’ll never eat just one at a sitting.“

Claudia: It?s not a problem to half the recipe. You can use chocolate chips but as Dorie suggest I think it?s nicer to have chocolate chunks chopped by hand. You normally get a better quality with regular chocolate than with chocolate chips. Cookies will look more rustic as well if you use chocolate chopped by hand.
