When I make these yummy treats with my young grandson, Ben, I use an extra-big mixing bowl to prevent the flour and other ingredients from flying all over. He seems to enjoy making the cookies almost as much as eating them!—Chantal Cornwall, Prince Rupert, British Columbia

"Some double chocolate cookies have a weird texture when they're baked...not this one. Delicious! I used white chocolate chips instead of semisweet for a little different flavor."

"These cookies are so good! The batter is really stiff - made me wish I had a KitchenAid, but worth the extra muscle required!"

"These are the best cookies ever! I first found them in the Cookies & Bars Book from 2010, and have made them so many times since. They go FAST and are my most requested recipe. The only recommendation I have is to add just a little more vanilla and they are perfect. Don't let the thick consistency scare you; they will be great."
