These taste just like the Panera Bread® chocolate duet cookies! They're even better the second day. Enjoy!

  • Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat 1 egg into butter mixture; beat remaining egg and vanilla extract into butter mixture.

  • Stir flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl; add to creamed butter mixture and beat until the dry ingredients are integrated into a dough.

  • Fold walnuts, white chocolate chips, and semisweet chocolate chips into the dough.

  • Drop dough by teaspoonful onto baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until browning along the edges, 9 to 12 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For my own personal touch, I used walnuts plus chopped macadamia nuts, lightly toasted. Just add as many or as little as you want.

I also used a 50mm cookie scoop and got approximately 40 cookies out of the batch.

I love Panera chocolate duet cookies! These are not exact but pretty darn good. I made my first batch following directions but when they came out of the oven they were flat and I knew they needed to be a little more cookies. I scooped out almost a 1/4 of dough for each cookie and baked them 14-15 minutes and they were perfect! Read More

The texture was good but the chocolate flavor was lacking. There needs to be melted chocolate in the dough to achieve the chocolate flavor of the Chocolate Duet Cookie (it's a component of the Panera cookie per the published ingredients). Read More

Make sure you use DARK cocoa powder for this recipe. It makes for a much richer cookie in appearance and taste. I used Hershey's cocoa special dark. Read More

We thought these were a cross between a cookie and a brownie. I used quite a bit less white chocolate chips and increased the chocolate chips, just a personal preference. They were delightful little chocolate morsels. Read More
