What is Tony Chocolonely?

Alrighty, let me introduce to you all my favorite chocolate on planet Earth...

Tony Chocolonely offers the tastiest variety of chocolate bars that are fit to feed a crowd, and wonderful for baking! And with their incredibly tasty chocolate, they are on mission to make all chocolate 100% slave free worldwide. Plus, their chocolate is made with all-natural, wholesome ingredients that will leave you speechless!

Is Tony Chocolonely ethical / slave free?

Absolutely! Tony Chocolonely follows strict Sourcing Principles to curate slave-free cocoa that is sold commercially and tastes handcrafted!

Is their modern day slavery in the chocolate industry?

Sadly, yes, there is. And that's why supporting Tony Chocolonely not only will happily feed your family and friends, but also support their mission to end modern day slavery in the chocolate industry. Right now, there is slavery on cocoa farms throughout West Africa as a result on the unequally divided cocoa chain. And with you help, Tony Chocolonely is fighting to stop the illegal child labor and modern slavery.

Where to buy Tony Chocolonely?

My go-to place to buy Tony Chocolonely is at Whole Foods Market and Fresh Market, but you can also check out more locations near you or shop online by clicking here.

How to make the BEST Fudge Brownie Cookies?

  1. Melt the chocolate and butter (you can also substitute the butter for 3 tbsp. olive oil).
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar until creamy, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the melted chocolate mixture into the eggs.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining dry ingredients. Gradually add into the egg mixture as you mix on low speed.
  5. Making sure the cookie dough is cooled, fold in the chocolate chunks.
  6. Bake until just set and crackle on top. Let cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then enjoy!

How long will brownie cookies keep?

These brownie cookies will last up to 4 days at room temperature (stored in a ziplock bag) or in the fridge for up to one week.

After the first few days, you can imitate those original crispy edges by heating them up in the oven at 350F for a few minutes.

Can you freeze brownie cookies?

Absolutely! But as I always say, fresh is the best ;)

  • FREEZE COOKIE DOUGH: I recommend rolling the cookie dough in a thick, long sphere shape like you would buy cookie dough at the supermarket. Then, wrap it in parchment paper and place in a freezer-safe ziplock bag. When ready to bake, let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before slicing thick circles to bake as normal.
  • FREEZE BAKED COOKIES: Place in a freezer-safe ziplock bag. When ready to serve, let them sit at room temperature until softened, about 20 minutes. (Optional: Reheat at 350F for a few minutes to re-crisp the edges.)

Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness! ’till next time! xxL

Sounds like an amazing recipe. Husband doesn't like (won't eat) dark chocolate or peppermint. Is there a substitute for the chocolate that we both will enjoy?
