Author Notes: As I’ve always preferred the chocolate chips or chunks in chocolate chip cookies to the cookies themselves, it occurred to me last year to quadruple the amount of chocolate in my normal recipe. I also added extra salt and changed the proportion of white sugar to brown. These small changes provided dramatic results with which I was pleased. Each cookie was awesome but a bit much so I decided to make them smaller.....and then smaller, and then smaller still.

Each one is now such a perfect little mouthful that I can sometimes eat just a couple and be utterly satisfied. Sometimes..... However, they are quite addictive and at other moments I can devour an entire batch at one sitting.

I was wondering if the amount of 8 cups of chocolate chips is correct and also, do I measure out teaspoons for the cookie dough onto the baking pans?
