Let me put it simply, white chocolate, good, dark chocolate good, chewy cookies, good – White and Dark Chocolate Cookies , amazing! The recipe is also really easy for anyone to make and is almost foolproof so could be a great one for making with friends or with kids as they cool really quickly so the recipe is instantly rewarding.  I also think they would be great for making in a batch and keeping in the cupboard to enjoy in the evening with a cup of tea. This recipe make around 30 biscuit sized cookies that will keep for 5 days in a sealed tin. Just make sure you do not overcook them or they loose their chewiness!
