If you are a chocolate lover, these cookies are not just plain chocolate cookies but also chocolate chips in it. I have been making these chocolate cookies with lots of chocolate chips in them for a long time. They are simple to make and tastes delicious. It’s one of my kids and their friends favourite cookie.

Make sure to refrigerate the dough as the butter tends to make the dough soft and if they are baked as is, the cookies will come flat. Refrigerated dough gives the perfect cookies.
