A friend of a friend gave me this recipe, so I am not sure where she got it from. This recipe makes a lot of cookies, and it is great when you are baking for a huge crowd. This cookie does not spread much making it thick and has a mouth load of chocolate (from the sprinkles and chocolate chips). I have left out the sprinkles and they still taste just as good. Since the batter comes out rather thick it is advisable to use a heavy duty stand mixer.
