I made one change and that was using a whole bag of chocolate chips IN ADDITION to the 2/3 of a cup that was melted. I did not bake these in 1/4 cup mounds, I used my cookie dough scoop (overfilled, not level) to make level smaller cookies. Even though they were smaller, the flavor was not lost in any way. We absolutely loved these cookies, especially right out of the oven. Out of the whole batch, only a handful remain. NOTE: If you make them smaller as I did, I did bake mine at 350* for ten minutes.

WWWhay too salty. suggest unsalted butter and no added salt

My new FAVORITE! I followed this recipe exactly but I will say I hestitated a couple of times. I tasted the batter and it did taste too salty but not after it was baked. Also, I hesitated to make them with a quarter cup measure. I thought surely they would be too big. Wrong again. Perfect! I am a chocoholic and I loved these!! I am going to make these again and add peanut butter chips, and another batch with mint chips. They are a nice size cookie to wrap for a bake sale. This recipe is going to get a lot of use at my house. Thanks Nestle Toll House!

Chocolate Heaven - I just couldn't think of two better words to describe these cookies! They're so chocolately and so chewy these are sure to be a favorite. These cookies stay soft for days - that is if they last that long! This recipe is perfect so if you're new to making cookies follow this recipe exactly and you'll come out with perfect cookies that taste incredible. I let the dough chill for a bit in the fridge and baked them on parchment paper. Be sure to have plenty of milk on hand 'cause your gonna need it for these chocolate treats!

I LOVE these cookies! Love the dark chocolate taste, love that they are delicate, rich and oh so chocolately. They remind me of a molten lava cake when fresh out of the oven. Slightly crisp on the outside and warm and gooey on the in. I pulled mine out when the tops started crackling up (about 13 minutes but I made my cookies a tad bit smaller than noted here. I got 24 palm sized baked cookies). They are soft and don't seem cooked enough but they will set up. Let sit on the cookie sheet a couple minutes before pulling them off to finish cooling on a rack. I don't feel they need more chips but I will add chopped walnuts to the next batch because I love a chocolate and walnut combination. If you follow the recipe as written you should enjoy these amazing wonderful cookies.

Delicious! The only thing preventing this from getting 4 stars is that there were not enough chips. I tossed in some cinnamon chips so this had a mexican chocolate taste. I also cut back on the salt to 1/2 t.

Very yummy cookie! I used unsalted butter over saltiness concerns expressed in other reviews.

They were good but a little too cakey and not enough chips. I will add butter, bake less and add more chips next time.
