Crunchy Chocolate – Almond Cookies

Today is Wednesday that means another MOPS meeting. Unfortunately I could not make it today :( but that won’t stop me from sharing with you the cookies I made for today’s meeting.

Everyone has a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Some like the cookie gooey some like it crunchy. We like them both ways, but prefer the crunchy ones. Now, to get the crunchy bite I add nuts to the batter. Depending on what I have in the house it can be peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia or almonds, like I did yesterday.

It was the first time I added slivered almonds. They turned out perfect. I rarely use the chocolatealmonds combo,  most of the time I’ve used hazelnuts and chocolate – stop dreaming about Nutella – peanuts and chocolate – who doesn’t love this combo- and sometimes walnuts and macadamia
If you have never tried almonds and chocolate it’s time you do so, trust me, you’re not going to be disappointed.

I’ve never been good at Maths and yesterday I proved it. Instead of making a batter for at least 3 dozen cookies I only made 2 dozens. Now, since we are around 20 or even more sometimes at the meeting I had to keep my husband away form the cookies. Now imagine his sorrow when I told him this morning I’m not going to the meeting and he can enjoy some cookies with his coffee.
