Chocolate Almond Cookies

These super indulgent Chocolate Almond Cookies are your ultimate chewy cookies which can easily make up for health bars given the Almonds in them!

We all learn from our mistakes and what’s even better is converting those mistakes into delicious success!
Something similar happened with these cookies.
Last week I started out to make Batternburg cake, it’s a 2 check cake covered in Marzipan. The Marzipan, recipe called for powdered Almonds and powdered Sugar. I dint have those in powdered form so, to save time I decided to powder them together. 
The two did not grind well to the fine texture that is needed for Marzipan dough, ideally it should have.

So anyways, I decided to add milk to make a smooth paste but in vain! Instead, I ended up with a very thick and sticky mass of roughly grounded almonds, sugar, cocoa (was making chocolate marzipan) and milk. It was certain that the Marzipan was not coming together so I stored the mass for later use. Had already decided of using it to make cookies.

On the day of baking, I added egg and flour to the failed Marzipan mix and made these cookies.
They turned out awesome, was really happy how a failed result of one recipe could be turned into a delicious product of another.
