Tip 1: For easy clean up, you can line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Tip 2: When storing the cookies, place a piece of parchment paper in between layers to keep them from sticking together.
You can store these in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Since there are already chocolate chips in the cookies, there is plenty of chocolate taste in them. Adding the candies after baking ensures that they remain intact and don't crack.
