Since I was a kid, chocolate was never a big deal to me. In fact, my parents soon realized that the chocolate Easter bunnies in my Easter baskets would never get eaten and would have to be thrown out eventually. When I make anything with a lot of chocolate, I have to rely on others to let me know if its good. But if there is something I know, it's good cookie dough. I love chocolate chip cookie dough. Confession: sometimes I eat around the chocolate chips when munching on the dough. When I was in college, you could usually find a container of cookie dough in my fridge. I wouldn't bake the cookies - I would just eat little pieces of the raw cookie dough for a treat. If you're cringing right now - try it before you judge.
Anyways, even though these are chocolate chunk cookies, I feel confident that I can rate them on the taste of the dough. It came pretty close to the best cookie dough I've ever eaten. I ate about three large spoonfuls of the cookie dough, because it was so delicious. The cookies were alright to me - I ate a couple of them when I wanted something sweet - but the cookie dough was something I would make just to keep in the fridge to nibble on.
