Sweet, gorgeous and seriously tasty …
Chewy Chocolate Cookies!
Put Chewy Chocolate Cookies on the table and it’s everyone for themselves. Think of them as your new addiction. They are so insanely rich when hot out of the oven, but once cooled they are chewy with just the right hit of sweetness (huge thank you to sweetened condensed milk).
This is a cookie that any glass of milk would be proud to be seen with.
It only takes one bowl, and just a few ingredients to pull this confection off, AND they are so simple to make! Yes indeed, they are almost too easy to whip up a batch … hence the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips have garnered a permanent spot on the grocery list. Perfect to make in a pinch and a great recipe for kids of any age, young and old, to bake anytime.
