This is a delicious cookie recipe. My nephew and niece cannot stop eating them! Deliciously chocolatey goodness in every bite. The best part is, they are nice and soft, which is the way I like them.

  9. I give these a 5 star! They taste just like a soft chewy brownie. They are very sweet you could probably cut down on the sugar if you wanted to but I like them this way. I only had 1 cup of brown sugar so I used 1/2 a cup of white sugar along with - Read more ...
