Happy Valentine's Day! I've had this recipe for awhile. It is from Alton Brown and was sent as part of Food Network's "12 Days of Cookies" email. It calls for 4 kinds of chocolate (100, 72, 54, 40 %) and cocoa nibs. Sahadi's had all of the chocolate (as wafers) in the bulk department and the nibs in packages. A labor of love, especially so due to my lack of a microwave (for melting chocolate).
These are not for the faint of heart. Do not be tempted to make the cookies any larger. If I make them again, I will decrease the chopped chocolate mix in. The cocoa nibs add a nice flavor and crunch. Serve with cold milk or strong coffee.
