I made these for my husband when we were dating. He had recently lost over a 100lbs....these cookies were his downfall. He was the one who called them "wicked" and the name stuck. I have a SIL who asks for these at every family gathering and for Christmas. I hope y'all like them as well as she does. The recipe is from a really old cook book....I can't remember the name. The original recipe calls for 3 cups of chocolate chips. I found it to be too much so I double the recipe and use 3 cups of chocolate chips. But if you love lots of chips in your cookies you can always add more!
