TWD: ceci n'est pas un turd: Chocolate Chunkers

These are the last of the TWD cookies for a while- hallelujah!  I must admit, it's my favorite of the bunch.  Actually, these cookies are fantastic.  They make up in flavor what they lack in appearance.  For real, they are not the most attractive of cookies.  They look like, well, turds.  But they are soooooo yummy.  They should be with 3 types of chocolate!  There is not much dry ingredients in these and a healthy dose of melted chocolate, which makes for a brownie like flavor studded with semisweet and milk chocolate chips, plus chopped toasted pecans and raisins.  YUM. I had to give these away so I wouldn't eat them.

Lauren, these sound delicious! Not so pretty food often taste wonderful and vice versa :) Never judge by appearance :)

HAHAHAHA!!!!!! Ceci n'est pas un turd, that's the most hilarious thing I've heard in a very long time. Anyone who makes an art reference is tops in my book.

Hmm, I thought they kind of tasted like turds, too. :o) Glad you liked them, though!

You're right, they're definitely not pretty. But they are pretty dangerous to have around! It's all I can do to keep myself out of the freezer.

I had planned to share them, but they were too good. Wish I had your self control. Haha. Glad you liked 'em =)

Zoe said...

It's funny how they can be so ugly but tasty! I'm glad you liked them- I had to give them away too, they were too good!

I also had to give them away in an effort to protect myself from these delicious cookies!!

Annette said...

I hid mine in the freezer. Actually, they're so rich that I don't think I could eat more than one or two at a time anyway (she tells herself while attempting to keep a straight face...).

Carla said...

Yes, these cookies have been my favorite out of the past TwD cookies. They may not look the greatest but the chocolate makes up for it!

I also had to give mine away. They are delicious, aren't they!

Pam said...

The cookies sound amazing, my chocolate loving husband and daughter would really dig them.

Liz said...

Ha! I remember a bunch of people commiserating on the TWD site about turd-like cookies. Sometimes you've just got to close your eyes and eat them, right?

Barbara said...

Yes, these were ugly but good (come to think of it, there's an Italian cookie with that name...Brutti ma Buoni...maybe these should take over the title!)

Glad you liked them!
