It's time for 12 Days of Cookies, Food Network's annual virtual cookie swap. Each day, visit us here on FN Dish for a peek at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques from your favorite Food Network chefs for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep.

Alton Brown uses four kinds of chocolate plus cocoa nibs to make his decadent cookies. The addition of chunks of chocolate and crunchy cocoa nibs to an already chocolate-filled batter will create a chewy and crunchy bite. The cookies might look a bit moist when they're ready to come out of the oven, but as they cool they'll be perfect for eating straight or as an ice cream sandwich.
