Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I love cookies. And Christmas time means lots of love and even more cookies! These Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a must. I make them all year round and the kids don't even wait for them to cool down before gobbling them up two at a time. These are a great snack for a tea time and even a midnight snack. Santa will be very pleased if these were set out for him. That is if everyone doesn't finish them before Santa gets there!

This recipe makes around 22 cookies, depending on how big your chocolate chunks are and if you don't add extra to the batter. You may even be able to make a full 2 dozen! We enjoy waring these in the oven to make them extra soft again before enjoying these with a tall glass of milk or tea.
