Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies  - on Silicone Mat with White Chocolate Chunks

I am insanely particular about the texture and thickness of my cookies, and this right here is my perfect bite of cookie. It’s not too thick, not too thin, not cakey at all, and has a good amount of resistance when you bite into it — a resistance that’s a little bit chewy, but also crisp on the edge. And as I describe this cookie, really, I think you could tell all those things just by looking at it. This is why I can come across a cookie recipe, take one quick look at the photo, and decide whether or not it’s for me.

This is basically a chocolate chip (er, chunk) cookie, but with dark AND white chocolate chunks. Chocolate chunks that are cut right from the block. There is a time and a place for chocolate chips, but sometimes you need big craggy chunks of chocolate cut straight from the block or bar.

I also love the play of the dark chocolate chips with the sweet white chocolate. It has a sort of “cookies and cream” effect to it, with both types of chocolate.
