Recipe for Easter Cookies

Firstly this is not my own recipe, but one I came across when going through my mums old recipes. This one for chocolate chip cookies was ripped from a magazine as far as I can tell, possibly something called Cooking Essentials. Either way its worth sharing as they are perfect for Easter. I have been informed they are best cookies I have ever made (praise indeed) . I used a mix of dark chocolate block and dark chocolate buttons roughly chopped instead of milk chocolate. Its really easy too which is always a bonus. Hope you like them.
