This is a take on the Nestle Tollhouse recipe. Only one added ingredient, dark brown sugar, melted butter and a smidgen more flour make the difference... I had to sell my soul to my aunt so she'd tell me why hers tasted soooo good! Chewy chocolate chip cookie heaven!!!!!

Yeah baby! I put these in an airtight containter and they are still chewy and delish two days later! I used organic molasses and Ghiradelli semi sweet chips and I have not been able to stop eating them! Thanks for a great new favourite!

Wowee Zoweee! These are something special. The molasses adds a carmelly flavor to the cookies. I don't think I could make them any other way now! Thanks Che~Sara!

These are not pretty cookies, but they sure do taste wonderful. They came out flat and monochromatic, kind of like the color of the milk chocolate chips I used. However, they are very tasty, chewy and soft. They were enjoyed by grownups and kids alike. Great alternative to the Tollhouse chocolate cookie recipes.
