This is an absolutely wonderful twist on the chocolate chip cookie recipe that I found in one of my many cookbooks called 'Forrest Gump: Chocolate Recipes'; inspired by the character and movie 'Forrest Gump'.

*If you use regular butter, omit the 1/2 tsp. of salt.

*I used only 1 10 ounce bag of semisweet chocolate chunks, and it worked just fine.
