Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

On Wednesday night, we had a craving for cookies, so we made a recipe off of the back of the bag of dark chocolate chips that we had in the pantry. They were great with a cold glass of milk! We didn’t use nuts, but I’m sure they’d be good in there. It’s a nice change of pace to have a chocolate chip cookie with dark chocolate in it!
