Recipe by mandabears

These are excellent, chocolate (as if there was chocolate that is not excellent) chewy cookies. And extremely easy to make, also a good thing.

YUMMMMMMM! I made this for a friend's birthday and it was a huge hit! I didn't have semi-sweet chocolate so I used milk chocolate bars and halved the amount of condensed milk because I didn't want it to be too sweet. I added 1/2 cup of chopped cashewnuts and didn't change anything else. These cookies were more fudgey than cookie-like, but nobody cared because they were so delicious! Thanks for this recipe, it's marvellous!
