Deep in my freezer is a secret. Okay not really deep or a secret but still in my freezer (!) is a bag. This bag contains what I like to call the “mystery” chips. Do you ever just need 1/2 a cup of chips? What do you do with the rest of the bag? You put it in the freezer for Mystery Chips!!! For some reason mine usually contains a lot of toffee bits, which is just fine with me!! Anyway you can really use any chips for this recipe, I just used the Mystery Chips!!! And these cookies are quite good by the way and I have no idea where I got the recipes!
