Chocolate in the IV, Please

For those of you who are die-hard chocolate lovers, (Patrick) I'm going to up the ante. This following recipe is best served with cold milk. It is super rich; the chocolate chips are melted right in the batter! Enjoy. I love, love, love these cookies.

Triple Chocolate Cookies (From Nestle Best Loved Cookies book from Avon)

1 ¾ Cups Flour
½ Cup Baking Cocoa
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 Cups (12 oz package) Semi-Sweet Chips
1/3 Cup Butter/Margarine
1 ¼ Cups (14oz can) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
½ Cup nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk flour, cocoa and baking soda in medium bowl. Melt only 1 cup of the chocolate chips and butter in the microwave; stir every 30 seconds. Stir in sweetened condensed milk, egg and vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour mixture. Stir in nuts and remaining chocolate chips (dough will be soft). Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set but centers are still slightly soft. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 3 ½ dozen cookies.

oh, is this the one I've tried? I don't even know...I just know it was a lot of chocolate. And the "best with cold milk" is straight for Patrick's heart :)

You've probably had them both at some point...I've made them for years. The Triple Chocolate ones are almost like fudge, if that helps your memory...
