Black Walnuts are a favorite nut by many Southerners, and I could not think of a better use of them than in this cookie recipe with GHIRARDELLI'S Chocolate chips, there is a big difference in this and other chocolate chips, this bittersweet chocolate is 60% Cacao,& the flavor is awesome.

These cookies are so decadent and tasty, & the chocolate literally melts in your mouth & tempt the taste buds asking for more. I cut some of the calories by using Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and Truvia, & I could not tell the difference. Give them a try, you can also use regular Brown & granulated sugar.
