There is nothing I crave more than ooey gooey cookies. The best is when you break a cookie open, especially chocolate chip, and you can see the melted chocolate strands. I had the idea of a soft cookie in mind and once I saw this one I knew I found a winner. Although these didn't have chocolate chips they were still packed with a chocolate flavor. They were super simple to make and easy to keep in the fridge for later days. If you also crave ooey gooey cookies this might just be your perfect match.
