Post Chocolate Mudslides

I copied this from the New York Times...
GOT MILK?



Jacques Torres
Chocolate Mudslides

The cookie for true chocolate lovers. The simplicity of this recipe belies the intensity of the chocolate flavor. Be forewarned: they are as strong as they are addictive.

6 oz. (about 1 1/2 cups) unsweetened chocolate, in chips or chunks

32 oz. (about 8 cups) bittersweet chocolate, in chips or chunks

3/8 cup unsalted butter

2 cups sugar

5 eggs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cup walnuts (optional).

1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Melt the unsweetened chocolate and 16 oz. (4 cups) of the bittersweet chocolate over a double-boiler (a simple double boiler can be set up by putting a metal bowl over a simmering pot), stirring periodically.

2. Cream the butter and sugar in a mixer until light and fluffy and add the eggs one at a time, blending until mixed.

3. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the butter mixture and mix just until combined.

4. Add the melted chocolate and mix until combined and stir in the nuts and the remaining 16 oz. (4 cups) of bittersweet chocolate. Pour the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or tray. Put the mixture into a refrigerator for 5 to10 minutes until slightly, but not completely, hardened.

5. Reverse the sheet or tray onto another piece of parchment paper on a hard surface. Use a knife to divide the mixture into 20 squares. With your hands, roll each of the squares into a ball and evenly space them on one or two parchment-lined baking sheets (leave room for them to spread).

6. Bake the cookies for 15 to 25 minutes, until crusty on the outside (they should still be gooey on the inside). Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before eating.

Yield: 20 large cookies.

sounds wonderful

Thanks for sharing. Sounds really wonderful! I know walnuts are supposed to be extra healthy for you. Chocolate too. Have to wait few days until the weather gets below 90+ degrees. I will have to wait patiently to taste them. I am sure they will be worth it.
