"Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Chip Cookies

"Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you like chocolate, then you will be in chocolate heaven with these unbelievably delicious cookies. The only change I would make is the amount of dough used for each cookie. A rounded Teaspoon makes the cookie about 2 1/4" in diameter giving you about 5 dozen. If you want larger cookies for a bigger chocolate rush, double the amount of dough for each cookie. You should get about 2 1/2 dozen out of a batch. This recipe is from our friends at Hershey's Kitchens. Happy Chocolate!
