Pre-heat oven to 375°.
Cream butter and sugars together. It's up to you whether you use light brown or dark brown sugar, depending on your preferred cookie texture. I prefer light brown because it lends to a more golden, raised cookie with crunchy edges and a chewy, slightly cake-like center.
Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
Sift flour, baking soda, and salt.
Add sifted dry ingredients to creamed mixture, mixing well.
Add chocolate chips and chocolate candies, thoroughly mixing into dough.
At this point, nuts are an optional add-in, but I always make without.
Drop by heaping teaspoon onto cookie sheet.
Bake at 375° for 10-11 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden and done.
Serve and enjoy!
