Black Mamba Cookies

Black Mamba Cookie (1)
Recipe from Celebrate with Chocolate by Marcel Desaulniers
Notes: My substitutions: 19 ounces of bittersweet chocolate replacing 16 oz semi + 3 oz unsweetened; all pecans instead of half walnuts. The “dough” is indeed quite batter-like. I bought a cookie scoop (#24) to make these and it already feels like one of those indispensible gadgets. Incidentally, the number of the scoop is often engraved on the sweeper part inside the bowl, and refers to the number of level scoops per quart of food (e.g. ice cream). The suggested baking time was right on for a soft chewy texture. WARNING: These cookies are intense. I struggled to eat two and then was jittery for a few hours. The espresso and chocolate are overwhelming.
