Ooey Gooies


An incredible amount of chocolate, but oh so good. Like free-standing brownies! Reserve for those you really love.

20 cookies


  • 16 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 6 eggs

  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 3 ½ cups chopped walnuts, toasted

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Melt the pound of chocolate and the butter together in a saucepan.

  2. In another bowl, beat the eggs and the sugar together at high speed until the mixture becomes thick and lemon colored and falls in ribbons from the beaters, about 5 minutes.

  3. Gently fold the melted chocolate-butter mixture into the egg mixture. In a separate bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together. Sift half of this over the chocolate mixture; fold it in. Repeat with the remaining flour mixture. Fold in the nuts and the chips.

  4. Cover the dough and chill for at least a few hours and as long as overnight.

  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  6. Wet your hands and remove large (about 3 tablespoons worth) clumps of chilled dough and quickly roll them into balls. Place the balls about 3 inches apart onto parchment lined sheets. Bake for about 18-20 minutes. The cookie will still appear moist when removed from oven but will firm up when cooled. Remove from oven and cool on sheet for about 10 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool.
