Lots of Chocolate Chips Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies but sometimes there isn't enough chips. I wanted to make the chocolate chip cookies with a lot of chips in each bite like when you eat chocolate chip ice cream. So, I took a cup of semi sweet mini chocolate chips and chopped them. Then I chopped them some more. I didn't want to shred the chocolate since I still wanted chips just a lot smaller chips. I made this recipe and my husband family ate the whole batch. Since I wasn't able to take any photos, I made the recipe again and hid a couple of cookies. My youngest daughter still found them but she had to wait until I had taken my photos. She did not want to wait. I think her strategy was she was hoping I would make them a third time within a week. Yes, she liked them that much.

One year ago........................I made Bangers and Mash.
 Did you already know..........
-Ruth Wakefield owned a tourist lodge named The Tollhouse Inn.
-She was making cookies when she realized she was missing an ingredient so she chopped a chocolate bar and created chocolate chip cookies.
-The chocolate bar that was used had been given to Ruth Wakefield by Andrew Nestle of the Nestle Chocolate Company.
