A friend gave me this recipe more than 20 years ago. They look like chocolate chip cookies, but no. The almond flavoring and the chocolate chunks make them so different. They are my families favorite cookies. Thankfully this recipe makes a very big batch. They still don't last long.
They can be made with nuts. But we aren't a big nut-loving family, so we go without the nuts. I also use Hersey's Symphony bar, but the plain one. But any good plain chocolate will work well. The recipe calls for 1-2 chocolate bars. You can decide how much you like. I usually use 1 1/2 bars. Plus we can eat the other half while we are baking the cookies.
Makes about 6 dozen cookies
