This double chocolate chip cookie recipe was inspired by my deep love of chocolate. I know I’m not alone, and believe it or not there are actually are some chocolate recipes, (though not many), that are too chocolaty, even for me.

I’ve added chopped pecans to this one for added texture but hey, you can use whatever kind of nuts you like. Have a nut allergy? Leave the pecans out. The cookies will still be delicious.

This cookie is one of those gooey cookies.  Not that I don’t like a nice crisp cookie because I do. In fact I have a recipe for pumpkin pie spice cookies that are a little on the crunchy side.
