A long name for a cookie, but these are deserving of grand title!
When I created these cookies, the chunks of chocolate and almonds appeared to "explode" out of the cookies... hence the name!
Normally I use almond shavings in these cookies rather than almond slivers, as pictured, but both work just fine. If you have Vive le Vegan!, you may have thought this recipe difficult because of the long list of ingredients. Quite the opposite. Some of the ingredients are repeated in the listing for ease of following the directions... but these are simple and quick to make!
These cookies are a personal favorite. If you have dark chocolate (bar or chips), almond slivers or shavings (or chop up whole almonds), and the basics of flour, cocoa powder, vanilla, etc... you can make these chocolatey rich delights!
