These biscuits are super chocolatey, chewy and crisp. They are simple to make, as long as you follow the recipe exactly or you may end up disappointed. So be precise and prepare to enjoy breaking into one of these lovely cookies while the chocolate is still melty. I like one with a demi-tasse of coffee.
Don’t substitute marg for the butter either, it just doesn’t work.
