“This came in my e-mail today from Very Best Baking. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks delicious and Very Best Baking usually has good recipes. It actually calls for Nestle Toll House Milk Chocolate and Caramel Swirl Morsels, but the computer would not let me put that. I'm sure that it would also be good with regular milk chocolate chips. I will update as soon as I make it.”
