The results were moist and delicious! I'd recommend heating them for a few seconds before eating to soften the chocolate chips up a bit. It only took us a couple days to demolish the entire batch, just the two of us. If we keep this up, we are going to need to start becoming much, much, much more active.
'til next time... ♥
