Recipe by caffeine junkie
Found in a cookbook by a friend, we tested it out using the smallest cookie scoop we could find, a 25 mm. They make the perfect size for munching and sharing! [This recipe makes A LOT of little cookies, so actual quantity is unknown] If dark chocolate chips are unavailable, substitute with the same amount of bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate.
