was so honored when he said to me, "Kelsey, all I want for my birthday is for


He hasn't been able to forget these delicious cookies I made for
his girlfriend's Surprise Birthday Party. So I told him, "How about I 
do even better! Instead of chocolate chips, I'll use chocolate chunks!"

Awesome recipe! I love how you made them into jumbo sized cookies. Small cookies are pointless because then you just end up eating more of them. :P
