No , I didn't use 2 pounds of chocolate ! ..
But 200gr chocolate were good enough.My 'old' habit with new (to me) recipes, is to make half or 1 quarter of the quantity, until I'm sure that recipe is a good choice (or the best one) . Yes and these "Jacques Torres's Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies" are more than just 'a good recipe', it's ONE of the best Chocolate Cookies ever !
Come on try them, and Please let me know if you like them like I did.
Good night, or good morning to all of you, it's late I'm going to take some sleep .. ! ;)
