Chocolate Chip Cookie Chunks

More chocolate! This is a great recipe, courtesy of Nasi Lemak Lover, to try if you have many younger guests. It makes lots of mini bite-size cookie chunks that are ideal for little hands. That said, there’s no reason your fully-grown guests can’t enjoy these tasty treats! Bake a batch of these and watch them disappear almost as soon as the tray hits the table.
