Got to be to a black tie charity event...hope my husband buys me something sweet (not this kinda sweet) at the silent auction!!!
These are nice and crispy with a touch of butterscotch
1-1/3 cup flour
3 tbl unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
10 tbl unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbl + 2 tsp light corn syrup
2 tbl whole milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt in a medium bowl. Stir butter and next 5 ingredients in another medium bowl until smooth. Stir in flour mixture then nuts. Cover and chill until firm at least 4 hours. This can be made a day ahead but keep chilled.
Place one oven rack in top third of oven and one at bottom third. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll 2 tbl fulls of dough to form balls and place on baking sheet. Flatten a bit. Bake two pans for 8-10 minutes and reverse their place on the racks both top and bottom about half way through the cooking process. Move cookies to a rack to cool.
Meanwhile melt chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle the chocolate over the cookies....oh my.....and let cool for about 30 minutes.
