"Those cookies! I ate all four of them and it hasn't even been 24 hours!"
"I could not love any human child more than I love your cookies."
"He was slobbering all over those cookies you gave him."
"Which Greek God reappeared to present you with this wonderful creation."
Okay, I made up the last one, but the top four were honest-to-goodness comments that I got when I delivered these cookies to people. This recipe is so good. While my children threw about 30 bouncy balls down the stairs, I was staring off into space wondering where this recipe has been my whole life. Then I figured that I still have a long life to live so better to get my paws on this recipe now than in 50 years when my eyesight is too bad to read a recipe, and my hands are too shaky to hold a teaspoon. These cookies will bring a smile to anyone's face. They are chewy and have three different types of chocolate. Now, we're talking! Give them a shot. You won't regret it.
