Recipe by PanNan
A friend shared this recipe. It's not your average chocolate chip cookie. Try it, you'll like it. The origin of the chocolate chip cookie was the Tollhouse Inn in Massachusetts - New England.

These are so good that I BET YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE!!! I sent a "care package" to my daughter's house - the grandchildren called to say they were YUMMIE & my daughter asked for the recipe. The only change I would make next time is to grate the hershey bar into the butter mixture as I think it will combine better. Thanx PanNan!
