Double Chocolate Crunchers

This recipe came from a Nestle chocolate chip package back in the 1950's. I used to make them when I was 10 or 12 years old and they were my speciality.

I made one cookie larger than the other and put the little one on top when I was younger. Now I make them the same size and sandwich them.
