Perfect for bake sale

These cookies were so easy to make and perfect for my son's school bake sale. My only concern was we would eat them all and there wouldn't be any to bring to school. They were a big hit. I will be making them again for my youngest son's school event as well.

Good to the last drop...

I made these for a fund raiser and guess what... they were the first to go. Don't make these unless you like chocolate. I added a couple more Tbsps of flour to get the right consistency for my drop cookie.

great for my chocolate cravings

I thought these cookies were just right to satisfy my chocolate craving. I did not have enough brown sugar so I swapped the amount with regular sugar and added a tbsp of molasses...still came out great.

These cookies for the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day for me and my husband, who are both real chocolate lovers! The semi-sweet chocolate makes the cookie intense, but not overpowering. They were gooey and delicious! I will definitely be making these again... and again!

We did not find these cookies particularly spectacular. The recipie worked well, but the family just did not find them notable nor would they want them again.I would suggest making a half batch to try them because this makes a huge quantity.

The ultimate chocolate chip cookies

I tried this recipe once and it was a huge hit. I can not make enough of them. I have passed this on to others and they love it just as well.

Good but not Ultimate

by K. Kayla , Leavenworth, KS on Jul. 2009

I feel that these cokies came out good...but not to my expectations. They did not come out like the picture shows...the chips seemed to sink into the middle of the cookies..which very well could have been because of me. I used 2 cups of milk chocolate chips for the melted part so maybe that affected the cookie was well. Overall they were good, but I will not be making them again.

A bit of chocolate heaven

by D. DEB , West Chester, PA on Jun. 2009

I searched many recipes looking for something different to prepare for a chocoholic friend. These cookies were perfect -- decadent and delicious. They received raves from everyone who tasted them.

Suprisingly Good

I wasn't sure these cookies were going to be very good but after tasting just one I was hooked. They are sinfully delicious. I know I'll be making these quite a bit. My husband loves chocolate cookies and he thought these were fabulous.

Great cookie

by E. Evelyn , Pamplin, VA on Feb. 2009

I was afraid it would be too chocolatey for my husband but the melted chocolate chips really made it tasty and was not over-powering. He thought they were great!
