Now I have to admit that dark chocolate is my favorite. However, I've made the chocolate chip cookies in the past with both dark and milk chocolate, and I much preferred the milk chocolate variety. So my version of the cookies varies slightly from the recipe on Smitten Kitchen. Instead of the 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips that her recipe calls for, I used a good milk chocolate bar cut into small chunks.
There's one other problem - she gives these cookie recipes as ice cream sandwich cookies. With the snow outside, it's way too cold for ice cream sandwiches...but you can be sure i'll be making these cookies again when the weather gets warmer -- with some ice cream in the middle!
