It seemed high time I baked some cookies with chocolate so I chose this recipe which in New Zealand is referred to as "brownies" because of the brown colour of the cookies, but obviously not a brownie as we know it here in North America.
This is a simple drop cookie - lots of chopped peanuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips mixed into a chocolate dough. The chocolate chips are optional but I'm glad I added them because I think the cookies would have been kind of bland otherwise.
It couldn't be easier and you end up with mounds of not-overly-sweet, delicious cookies like this -
You can't go wrong with chocolate and peanuts, that's for sure. The recipe yields about 30 cookies so I'm pretty sure that none of these will be going into the freezer!
