"These cookies are really easy to make and taste great. Once when I was out of chocoalte chips I just left those outi and they still tasted great. Chilling the dough definitely makes it much easier to handle."

"My grandma use to make these. They were my favorite cookie. She didn't use chips though. Thank you for posting it. Plan on making them for work. Love the brownie texture."

"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!"
