Ok, so I have declared a previous recipe the best for chocolate chip cookies – and it is good, but I really think I have found a replacement. Now, I have to admit that during my pregnancy I have turned to Bernie while eating things like frozen pizza and “pigs in a blanket” and said they were the best ever, surprised when he didn’t share my enthusiasm. To my defense – Bernie really liked these too. I used bittersweet and milk chocolate because I didn’t have any semisweet and, I liked the mix.
