    Very good...I'm in Switzerland and they don't have chocolate chips (can you imagine?...Nestle is only about 40 miles away and they don't have chocolate chips!) so I used a Frigor Dark Chocolate candy bar and chopped it up into tiny pieces. I thought it was just chocolate, but it turns out it also has a creamy hazlenut ingredient. Anyway, the raw dough tasted EXACTLY like Ben & Jerry's chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I baked the cookies too long (a common problem of mine) so they were a little crisp once cooled, but my husband loved them and we think they'll go great with ice cream. Will definitely be making again. Oh - this doesn't make 3 dozen cookies....MAYBE makes 2 dozen...but more like 15 - 18 regular sized cookies.  -  13 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    They were a big hit among friends and family. Actually, they go way too fast! I might try making it in two different batches next time since they squished together during baking... check out the photo I submitted for the title.  -  17 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very easy chocolate chip cookie recipe. My kids and husband love them. It makes a very small amount, though, so I quadruple the recipe each time and keep some dough in the refrigerator for when I run out--which is very soon.  -  28 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
