Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I love anything chocolate, and chocolate chip chunk cookies…I absolutely love ’em. I just hate that I can’t stop eating  once I start-they are so addictive!!

The trick I learned is to bake a small batch- for us, that’s about a dozen, three cookies for each of us; so when it’s gone..it’s gone!!

Ha! If only I keep that in mind everytime..but heck, no. I bake the whole batch more often than not and just worry about my self-control later. It’s a tough battle. *sigh* ;)

This recipe is from here. It has become my go to recipe whenever the cookie monster in me needs feeding. I sometimes replace the flour with wholewheat flour without any problem, it still taste great. I like to put some chocolate chunks on top of each cookie right after I take them out of the oven. The heat from the cookies will slowly melt the chocolate…and it IS SOOO GOOOD!! YOOOOM!
