triple chocolate milky way cookies

^^^ for serious chocolate lovers only ^^^

i first found the milky way cookie recipe here
and have already baked them three separate times!
each time, the cookies have been a hit - 
i have to tell you, i am absolutely 
and completely inept in the kitchen.
however, these cookies (as they are primarily various chocolate morsels)
are really quite simple.
