I have made this recipe for years. One of my favorites. Not hard to make at all. Very big chocolate taste, so if you need a fix, make theses for sure. I have also frozen the dough to keep for later and when it softened, just as good as fresh. (as well as the cooked cookies freeze well)
I made these with a 12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips (divided) and 1 cup of walnuts. It was very good and easy to make.
I splurged and got really high quality chocolate for these and boy was I glad I did. I made these for my boss on Boss's Day. Heard through the grapevine that he called them "the best cookies he had ever eaten" Very rich and very good. My dough was thick, sort of like brownie dough.
