Melted Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rose Mary Mogan


Nothing is more gratifying to me, than for me to make a big batch of my husbands favorite dessert snack after he has had a long day at work. I did just that on yesterday when I made a large platter of these buttery tasting chocolate chip cookies.

They are one of his favorite dessert snacks, they are moist chewy, & filled with lots of nuts & chocolate chips. I used Ghirardelli's chocolate just to make sure he enjoyed the chewy chocolate goodness. These buttery lil gems did not disappoint. I asked him if he wanted to take some to work, he said no, that means he really loved them.
