Are you ready to be a cookie master ?

Start off with soft butter so it whips up well. Beat the butter until its light and fluffy.

The next secret is the combination of white and brown sugar by adding brown sugar it gives you much-needed moisture so the cookies don’t end up dry and the perfect cookie color.

Another key ingredient is baking soda, adding baking soda also known as bicarbonate of soda tenderizes the cookie making them less cakey and the crumb is much smaller and softer.

The most important part of these cookies are the CHOCOLATE  throw in a mixture of chocolate semi-sweet and bitter-sweet , well no one can go wrong about the amount of chocolate as they say the more the merrier.
