I found a very highly rated recipe from Allrecipes.com and got to work! I decided to make a half recipe since I only had half a bag of chocolate chips. However, I soon realized I was missing some key ingredients (whoops!) so I made up a different recipe on the spot. I basically simplified the recipe I had been using and added hot chocolate mix in hopes of filling in for the lack of brown sugar. The cookies turned out to be super delicious so I thought I would share my DIY improvised recipe.

These cookies have a delicious soft center and a crispy outside. They almost taste like a cross between a cookie and brownie. They are super easy to make so I hope that you get a chance to enjoy them yourself!
