How to Make Walnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Wondering how to make walnut chocolate chunk cookies? They're so easy to make from scratch!

And, since this recipe makes up to 48 small cookies per batch, you can rest easy knowing that you're not going to have to worry about running out anytime soon (and even if you do, they're so easy to make you can just whip up another batch!) 

One of the best flavours of these cookies the dark chocolate. The sweet milk chocolate combined with the "bitter" dark chocolate makes the perfect flavour in your mouth. 

And once you pair up these cookies with the added walnuts, the texture of these cookies will literally melt in your mouth. In less than 30 minutes of time, you'll have a plate full of warm cookies, ready to share!

Can you freeze these cookies for later?

You can! There are two ways that you can go about doing this. Freeze the cookie dough once made or freeze the cookies after they've cooled and baked. Either way, this just means that you'll have more cookies later to enjoy!

If you do freeze the cookie dough, do your best to keep the dough as airtight as possible. The last thing that you want to happen is to have freezer-burnt cookie dough! 

Since these cookies have so many "layers" of flavour, there really isn't one specific time of the year that you have to make them. They're great during autumn, at Christmas time, or just as a fun weekend cookie at home. Enjoy!
