If you are in the mood for some rich, fudgey chocolate goodness, these cookies are the perfect thing to satisfy your craving. I should really make myself some every day. I get that craving a lot. I found that these cookies are the best when eaten warm. Eat them a few minutes out of the oven, or simply place in the microwave for 8 seconds to get them warm and gooey again. Yum!
