Holy cow, these are good! Don't change a thing, just pay attention and you won't overcook or undercook them. Easy and tasty! You can also drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto a cookie sheet and freeze them. Then bag them up and you can have more hot fresh cookies when you want them. Bake at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes, check often. Yum! Thanks Tiffany!

I used butter rather than margarine and the cookies were delicious. Very ooey, gooey and chocolatey. The kids will beg for more!!

These are the best cookies I've ever made. I did everything almost exactly as the recipe called for, except I added 2 teaspoons of instant coffee powder along with the dry ingredients. I made them smaller than the recipe called for - made 3 doz, so they were smaller than the original recipe. Baked them for exactly 10 minutes, and they came out amazing. A delicate crisp on the outside, and a soft chewy inside. They remind me of the double chocolate cookies at Panera's.

These cookies were extremely tasty, soft and chewey too. Everyone loved them! I added raspberry chocolate chips instead of plain semi-sweet for a change. Yum, yum.

Great cookies, though they don't hold their shape well if you bake the dough right after you make it. I would suggest freezing the dough for a few hours, or putting it in the fridge overnight before baking. Then, roll into to tablespoon balls and flatten into patties after putting them on the cookie sheet. Try using butterscotch chips too! Great combo with the chocolate. I also added marshmallows to the center of them. Don't mix marshmallows into the batter though, as they make the cookies impossible to get off the cookie sheet.

A super chocolatey cookie and nice and soft. My husband loved them and he's picky about his cookies. I was having a chocolate craving and these cookies hit the spot!

Pretty good cookies but not a five in my book. I got about four dozen out of the recipe so I'll be taking a lot to work. Ten minutes was a perfect amt of time to bake them but I only let them cool for three minutes and that worked well. They were firm & easily removed from the baking sheet. For the first dozen I had only put in one cup of the choc chips because I thought I wouldn't want anymore but once I tasted one I felt that it could use the two cups. The recipe didn't indicate what size spoon to drop the rounded spoonfuls but I used a regular tablespoon and they came out a nice size, not too big nor too small. Another thing, I definitely needed a glass of milk with each cookie or atleast a half glass!
