Deep Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Kris Krajacic


This recipe is from the Hershey's chocolate lovers cookbook; they are my husbands favorite chocolate cookie. He doesn't care for nuts so the picture is without nuts. I've also made them with & without the chocolate chips; being a chocolate lover, I prefer them WITH the chips! They remind me of a little brownie - yum!!
