I couldn't find any good quality unsweetened chocolate except for the single ounce I had in my cupboard and having made a similar recipe before, I know that I like a little semisweet choc. in the batter also so in the end I used 1 oz unsw., 4 oz bitter & 3 oz semi. I also forgot to buy unsalted butter so used salted and cut the salt in half. I used the microwave to melt the chocolate & butter. On a whim I decided to use some mini reece's pieces instead of the choc. chips. These were awesome and my friends loved them! Thanks for the recipe!
It's my first time to write a comment on anything else that's on the net...but I can't help it this time, I really should do this. This recipe is really magnificent, a MUST TRY!!! In fact, after giving it to some of my friends and relatives as gift, they would like to know the recipe that my husband jokingly said I should put up a baking class (LOL)!!! BTW, I reduced the sugar to 1 1/4 cups but increased the semi-sweet chocolate drops (small) to 1 1/4 cups. I also added 1 1/4 cups chopped walnuts. I would like to try the size L chocolate drops and see the effect. Thank you so much for this!!!
Really good recipe, my only change is to add I cup chopped nuts of your choice and 1 cup of white chocolate chips as well as the semi-sweet chips.
