Ratings & Reviews

    not as good as I anticipated - almost too much chocolate
    A perfect cookie for chocolate lovers!
    I like to use white chips instead of milk or dark chocolate. I also like to add dried cherries.
    This recipe is very versatile and pretty fool-proof. You can use whatever type of chips (virtually any flavor will work). Use a small melon-ball sized scoop to dispense batter onto the cookie sheet and you will yield exactly 5 dozen cookies.
    These are moist and chewy. you can change the flavor of chips you use.
