Double-Chocolate Chunk Cookies

These cookies don't need much of an explanation.
They taste great.
They're easy to make.

What more could you ask for?

Mr. Christie watch out here comes the Bumbling Baker.
These Double-Chocolate Chunk Cookies are awesome.
They can easily make it in my top 5favorite cookies.
If you had a rating system I’d give them two thumbs up
and my right pinky toe.

Very impressive.

WOW! I got $1 per cupcake, so $24 for the whole box. But I'm thinking I should've charged more for the ones with Frangelico and Nutella. Those ingredients aren't the cheapest.
