We know that good things come to those who wait, and here is edible proof. You need to make this mixture the day before and rest it overnight to let the ingredients mix and the flavours develop, but if you have the time and you use these exact ingredients you'll be rewarded by the most chewy, chocolatey, amazing cookies EVER. A warning - I only recommend that you bake these cookies if you have a party/BBQ/cake sale etc to take them to. Not following this advice will result in you eating ALL of these cookies.
This recipe makes lots, so if you don't want to bake them all, you can freeze the dough and have homemade cookies on hand anytime.

1 ¼ tsp. baking soda
