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.

Nothing better than a good chunky cookie to dunk into a nice glass of milk. Loving these cookies so much need to start the baking season at home

These cookies look wonderful. Well done to your boys. Pecans aren’t so easy to find here in Italy but your story about buying them in Georgia reminded me of the hazelnuts I bought recently in the Piedmont. I also bought whole, chopped and finely chopped. I guess I could use them in this recipe instead of the pecans.
Triple chocolate – yes! I love love love nuts in my cookies AND chocolate. Perfect combo and perfect for all those holiday cookie trays!

Every cloud has a silver lining. I’m glad you found yours. Back pain is the worst…feel better soon.
I hope your back is feeling better. I like having shortcut recipes on hand! They look great – your sons did a wonderful job!
The boys did great! I hope your back is feeling better. It’s hard to not be 100% during the holiday craziness!
