Brazil Nut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Yum


I am such a cookie fanatic. I could probably eat cookies every single day. Although I don't. I actually hardly ever bake cookies. Sadly or fortunately. :)
So today I was not gonna bake anything, I am studying for my last final exam before graduating college. So fingers crossed for me!!
But I had had enough for today. I literally couldn't make sense of anything I tried to study. So I decided that's enough. I need a break. I need comfort. I need...comfort food? Yup. Cookies make me so happy. Baking cookies make me even happier. Thus I made some! Okay, a friend of mine told me she was making one of my cookie recipes and I immediately got the urge to make some, as well ;)
I didn't feel like waiting 24 hours for the dough to chill so I picked a recipe that looked pretty awesome, halved it since there's only 2 of us at home. And here you go. This cookie recipe is up to the point. Chewy, nutty, sweet, quick and easy! 
Perfect for one of those days when you feel like you're dying to eat a cookie and you want that cookie right now!

Chewy, see?

How sneaky of me to show off my doggies among the cookie pictures? :)

  2. My mum is a massive brazil nut fan, bordering obsessive when it comes to chocolate covered brazils so I just know these would be a huge winner with her! And they look pretty far up my street too :) Sometimes you just have to make cookies!
