Chocolate Duet Cookies | Dark Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips & Walnuts

These are no Panera Bread Duet Cookies. It is true, but trust me I have attempted more than once.  Some of the copycat recipes I have tried are quite delicious, but they are never really close.  I’m convinced they put Black Magic in them.  Anyways, I wasn’t even intending to make a similar cookie and here ya go… the closest I’ve ever been.  And whether they are exact replicas for not; well these cookies are just darn chocolate fabulousness.
