At least twice a week I have an urge to stop at the Panera drive-thru (SUCH a wonderful thing… we won’t mention how often I’ve used it since becoming a mom 18 months ago) just to get one of their chocolate duet cookies. The combo of chocolate, white chocolate, and walnuts just gets me (and is essentially an upscale version of the subway chocolate cookie that I lived off of my freshman year of college). But, as wonderful as the cookie and the drive-thru is, there is something about paying $2 for a cookie and then only having one that bugged me enough to find a way to make them at home.
So, even though I’m not about to whip up another batch until I’ve slept more than three consecutive hours (life with a newborn), you should go make some for both of us. And don’t skip the sea salt on the top, it takes everything up a notch.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- sea salt for sprinkling
- Cream butter and sugar together before mixing in eggs and vanilla.
- Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl.
- Mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture.
- Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Scoop out tablespoon sized balls of dough onto a cookie sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. .
