It's the best chocolate chip cookie recipe because of the copious quantities of chocolate chips and chunks!

The best recipe is not about the cookie.

The cookie is just the vehicle for chocolate delivery.

It's about lots of dark chocolate. Semi-sweet, dark, and bittersweet chips and chunks crammed into just enough cookie dough to hold them together.

Or use fewer chips like the Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie recipe does. Make them the way you like!

But homemade cookies can be highly addictive. So please read the warning before consuming America's favorite cookie.

Baking or being under the influence of homemade chocolate chip cookies can alter some people's behavior. So the following warning is provided as a public service.

WARNING: These cookies may be hazardous to your self-esteem. The mere smell of them baking has been shown to cause drooling in adult females. Consuming them while still warm can result in a complete collapse of one's self-control. Excessive consumption will cause weight gain.

So please consume with caution. All those rich and creamy morsels of dark chocolate chips with extra cocoa butter are delicious but very fattening. If you can't resist crispy chocolate chip cookies made from scratch, don't blame me. I warned you!

Don't trust yourself around a plate of delicious cookies?  Try this puzzle.  No calories just fun!  Or frustration?
