I was SO skeptical throughout the entire baking process... Not enough chocolate, I thought, wrong dough consistancy, I thought, wrong size balls, I thought... Boy did I think WRONG! The dough didn't firm up like I expected, even after some time in the freezer so I just used a cookie scoop and made bigger cookies so I didn't have to get my hands all sticky. Even after pulling them out of the oven I still wasn't sure about them, but after that all imortant one minute rest time on the cookie sheet (some needed two or three since I made them bigger) I took one bite and was in love! My husband who is a major chocolate chip cookie guy really liked them too! I just added the white chocolate on top and put sprinkles on some and they are beautiful! They really are super soft and chewy!!! I added a touch of peppermint extract to the batter to make them more "Christmasy" and out of all the Christmas goodies I made this year, these are my favorite!! Thank you SO much for posting this quick, easy, chewy and delightful recipe!!
