I just tried these and OMG they are so delicious!!! I added a little twist which ended up not being so nice! I added butterscotch chips with the chocolate ones.. Next time (oh there will definitely be a next time!!) I'll stick to the recipe and use only chocolate chips.. My hubby loved them as well.. 5 stars!

Yum! Very rich but very tasty, next time i might not use quite o much chocolate, but otherwise they were amazing!

This recipe works perfectly and makes the best chocolate cookies in the world!!
I used half choc chips (white and milk) and half m&ms..delicious, if not disgustingly unhealthy!

Great recipe, I made 38 cookies, about rich tea size with the amounts given, which took about 9 mins to cook properly, any longer and they get a bit crispy round the edges. I used white and milk choc chips which was delicious and looked great. Really easy recipe, will definitely make again!

We held a cake sale at work and i made these cookies as my offering, they went down a treat with everybody commenting on how tasty they were! They're extremely soft and chewy, i added white and dark choc chips as i hadn't got any milk chocolate chips and this worked just as well :D

Fab 10 year old daughter just made these with my guidance and they were really quick and easy. She was thrilled with the result and they went down well with the whole family. Will definitely be making them again but will make them slightly smaller next time!

Wow!! I thought i had a perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe - wrong!! These are perfect. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Carol. I made 38 desert spoon-sized cookies from the quantities above.

Wow- I have always been disappointed in the past with cookie recipes but not this one. They are so easy to make and are melt in your mouth. Just made my second batch and now cant wait to play around and make some plain cookies with white choc chips and macadamia, fudge chunk ones and maybe even some cranberry and choc chip. I halved the recipe the second time and reduced the cooking time to 10 minutes - more to save my waistline than anything else!

These are great! Had to experiment a bit with the size of the cookies - first lot were too big so I made the second batch a bit smaller and then left them in a bit too long!! But I managed to get 28 cookies using the quantities given here - coffee time at work tomorrow will be extra specially yummy!!!!

Absolutely gorgeous! Even better when warm from the oven when they're soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside, but good even when they cool.

Make them small though since they puff up quite thick.

Brilliant cookies, everyone here loved them.
I halved the recipe and still managed to make 11 reasonably large cookies, so doing the full amount will make 15 pretty large ones :)
