These molten muffin like chocolate chipper cookies are so chewy and chocolaty they will make every chocolate lover swoon with delight and some might even overdose on chocolate deliciousness!(is that even a word? These taste like the Red Lobster Dessert.
I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as I do- I'm out of chocolate rehab now! lol
