Double Chocolate Cookies

Ok so I have put the peanut butter cookies on hold.  My son has been asking for double chocolate cookies.  I saw this recipe a while ago in a Family Circle mag (Feb 2011).  So I decided next time I have a chance to make cookies I will make this one. 

I don’t know why I waited so long!  They are divine!  I did switch out half the chocolate.  It calls for 12 oz of milk chocolate, half to be melted in the batter and half used as chunks.  I melted 6oz and put that in the batter, but used 6 oz of dark chocolate chips instead of the rest of the milk chocolate.

I definitely need to make more of these to give away.
