"Only thing I did differently was to use regular sized chocolate chips (didn't have the mini's on hand). Slightly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside...taste very much like a brownie! A favorite of ours from now on!"

"I found pre-melted chocolate that makes this recipe easier. They are gooey, chewy like a fudge brownie. Absolutely a favorite!"

"This cookie recipe has been around for a long time. This contributor did not "create" anything. I make them for Christmas every year and I got the recipe from a Betty Crocker cookbook!"
