    I've made this twice now - it's so easy!! I make it in the kitchen-aid and it's hardly any work. I did adjust the sugar though. I've found that 1/4 C packed brown sugar, 1/3 C white sugar and 3/4 C chocolate chips is plenty sweet for our tastes. Especially if you're going to top it with some ice cream! 19 minutes in my oven yields the perfect texture. The kids love this recipe!

      I agree! If you have a Kitchen Aid with paddle attachment to mix; use it. It is much easier than mixing with a wooden spoon. And yes, this was very sweet. I am going to reduce sugar content and follow your suggestion.

    I was craving chocolate chip cookies last night and decided to use this recipe. It was super gooey after the five minute rest, I wasn't sure I did this right. Next day it tasted awesome cold, right out of the refrigerator, soft and chewy! It is super sweet, will definitely make again but with less sugar and maybe leave in oven a bit longer than 20 minutes.

    Super easy to mix up in a bowl just as directed. This recipe is tried and true in my house and we love it. For a small group this is exactly the perfect amount of dessert to finish a meal. The only *actual* work is remember not to over defrost the butter in the microwave. But, since I do that all the time, I've learned that melted butter works with this too. Clean up is super quick.

    Absolutely amazing! Warm from the oven, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream takes it over the top. So easy and decadent.

    Great, easy recipe. I used 1/2 c dark chocolate chips and 1/2 c white chips just for fun. 18 minutes was not long enough, though, in my oven. I put it back in for a couple more minutes and it was perfect!

    I've made this a few times and love how quickly it goes together. The taste is classic chocolate chip cookie! But I keep wondering if I'm getting the baking time right. Says to cook until just set, but is it supposed to be that gooey? Seems under baked. Has anyone else had this issue?

    This is one delicious and easy to make cookie! My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how great it turned out. Love how all the ingredients are easily combined in one bowl and simply spread onto a skillet. Top it with some icing for a birthday cookie cake! I don't know if I'll ever make regular cookies again.
