These are a delicious soft and chewy chocolaty bite of goodness and a pretty cookie with their snowy white and chocolate crackled look. They would be perfect for any holiday table! And other than the time it takes to chill the dough, they are pretty quick and easy to make as well. I did learn that they can be pretty squishy right out of the oven so be sure to leave them on the pan for the two minutes suggested. Otherwise, your cookies will squish back up when you try to remove them with your spatula.
