chocolate chunkochino, sort of

I keep meaning to write about holiday cookie baking, but I made these Chocolate Chunkochino Cookies from Dede Wilson’s Unforgettable Desserts even before the holidays and never got around to writing about them. But the thing is, I made a lot of tweaks to the recipe. I emailed Dede to tell her about the changes: I chopped the chocolate too finely and it got kind of blended into the dough, I used light brown sugar instead of dark brown, I left out the cacao nibs, I used instant espresso instead of regular coffee, and I topped the cookies with milk chocolate instead of using more of the bittersweet kind. Dede said to me (in a loving way, of course), “You’re a recipe tester’s worst nightmare!”

But hey, these didn’t just turn out good, they turned out AMAZING! I can’t wait to make my mistake cookies again. P.S. Dede has a cool blog here. P.P.S. thanks, everyone, for helping me hit 250 followers!
