Well, in the middle of making cookies for the 12 Days of Christmas cookies I managed to hurt my back. So, some of the cookies had to change, but that’s OK. It’s good to be flexible. So to the cupboard I went in search of another cake mix to make these nutty triple chocolate cookies. You do what you have to do when you’re in pain. The best part was I did get my boys in the kitchen to help and that always makes me happy. As they get older (much to fast by the way) we have so much fun. I basically supervised and just look how beautiful the cookies turned out.
I used pecan in this recipe but you could use walnuts. When we were heading home from vacation last year, we stopped for pecans in Georgia. I bought whole, chopped and finely chopped pecans. I used the finely chopped ones for this recipe and I think they worked well. Every bite is chocolaty goodness. Even with all that chocolate I didn’t feel they were too sweet. These are perfect for holiday giving or lunch boxes throughout the year.
