Alright, how can I summarize how absolutely DELICOUS this recipe truly is... I have decided to list the top three reasons to make these TONIGHT…

1.) They make your whole house smell like a chocolate factory
2.) They literally melt in your mouth
3.) Oh and did I mention that they are completely stuffed with chocolate chips!!

TO summarize with one statement…They were pretty darn amazing!

I cut the recipe in half (it’s just George and I) and they turned out great. George likes them soft I like them crunchy so I compromised.. I made the first batch soft (to do this just spoon out a larger amount of dough and cut the bake time down to about 8-9 min). The second batch was crunchy (just bake them for the full 11-12 min). We ate them while we finished decorating our tree.—SAD!! I know...its only 9 days until Christmas.. But better late than never!! I have decided to name the tree Paisley.. Last year my sister and I lived together and I named our tree Margie..

*Side bar* You all will soon discover that I basically have a "nick name" for everything... Just as an example I have had a white jeep for 2 years now whose name is Snowflake—lol!!... *End of side bar*

Well I promise I will post a pic of Paisley tomorrow. WARNING.. It is a HUGE tree. Well I hope you all try out the recipe. I also have posted this really cool link that allows you to convert recipes very easily because I am a bit slow and I find it down right irritating to work math problems just to double , triple, or in this case cut in half a recipe.
