Amazing cookie recipe!

This is the best chocolate cookie recipe! It's perfect for a dessert with a glass of milk. I love the way the chocolate chips melt in your mouth when you take a bite.

Excellent cookie

This is one of my favorite recipes. It is very rich and full of chocolate flavor. This recipe has never failed me and even tastes better the next day! I'm always asked for the recipe whenever I make these. Oftentimes I will use peanut butter chips along with the chocolate chips. They are my husband's favorite cookie.

Nice chocolate taste, but next time I will add more chocolate chips at the end since I am a chocoholic. Like the way they melt in my mouth while they are warm. Great for dessert along with a glass of milk.

rich and chewy

We enjoyed these cookies very much, they are a cross between a cookie and a brownie. Easy to make and clean up. Also easy to switch up the chips that you use, mint, caramel, peanut butter, butterscotch- you can get pretty creative with this recipe.

My kids are always asking for cookies so I am always looking for new recipes to make. I made this one and everyone loved them, now my kids ask for them all the time.

Chocolate Fix!!

by M. Megan , NEW LONDON, CT on Jan. 2006

These cookies are great when you need a chocolate fix. I made a couple of healthy changes by substituting 3/4 cup of the flour with whole wheat flour and the butter with Light Stick Butter. Also I mixed in 1 cup white chocolate morsels instead of using only semi-sweet and omitted the nuts. They still turned out great. I will definitely make these again.

Really Good

My kids had some friends over that they wanted to impress. So we made these cookies. A huge hit...all the kids loved them.

This dough is easy to work with. I like the chewy texture that the sweetened condensed milk gives these cookies. Would be a perfect picnic dessert!
