Chocolate cookies mean different things to many people. Perhaps it brings you back to when your grandmother used to bake some delicious cookies when she would come visit and serve them with a warm glass of milk. Or maybe it reminds you of the times you and your friends would stay up all night eating nothing but junk food, while playing games during sleepovers. Whatever they may mean to you, a good reason to bake a sweet dessert is always good. Here is an easy recipe to make delicious chocolate chips!
