These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are a chocolate lovers dream come true with a rich moist bite and a slightly chewy finish. Move over plain old chocolate chip cookies! You don’t stand a chance against these. They are one of our favorite cookies and I have to give a good portion of them away to friends every time I bake them or I would continue to eat them like a starving maniac. Beware they are extremely addicting.
