Easy to make Chocolate Treasure Cookies

June 2, 2019

Chocolate Treasure Cookies combine decadent chocolate chips and crunchy pecans to create a cookie that is so tasty you may guard the cookie jar like it is a national treasure!

When the craving for chocolate hits, I have the perfect solution. Chocolate Treasure Cookies. These are easy to make and even easier to devour! The combination of a soft chocolate cookie with white chocolate chips and crisp pecans is bound to become a family favourite!

The flavour of this cookie recipe is impressive, but simple to make. You will note that the dough does require 30 minutes of resting time in the fridge. This is an important step that makes the dough less sticky and easier to form balls with.
