I absolutely adore my cookies for two recipes, but there are a couple cookie recipes that I have a small batch recipe for but don’t have a full batch recipe for. And sometimes you do need a full batch of cookies. Especially these double chocolate chip cookies.
Luckily last night when I made these we had some family over to help eat them and actually between the 5 of us we ate almost every single cookie (I think there were still 2 cookies left this morning). But that is how good these cookies are. So good, that 5 people could eat almost 3 dozen cookies in just a few hours.
I’m telling you, if you like chocolate (who doesn’t like chocolate!?) you will love these cookies. The chocolate batter is fairly simple to make and then to make things even more chocolatey you add in chocolate chips to the batter too. But I will warn you, these cookies are pretty rich and you will need a large glass of milk to go with them.
