Recipe by TGirl

Chocolate chip cookies with an extra boost of chocolate swirled into the batter to make Tiger Stripes. Nice cookie swap idea, or give away as a sure-fire Pick-Me-Up. You can't go wrong with Chocolate!

I've seen this recipe around for awhile and I also have seen it on the box of frosted flakes, so I thought I'd try it. The taste is good, but the flakes made for a weird texture. I thought they would be crunchy but instead there are bits of cereal in there that are unpleasantly chewy.
