These Almost Famous Amos Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies are almost there! That is quite close to Famous Amos, and because there's no shortening added, the textures will never be quite like Famous Amos. They're are very crunchy and very addictive.

This recipe makes a huge batch of cookies and like most cookies, it can be prepared in advance and kept in freezer. The ingredients used are like most chocolate chip cookies except of one secret ingredient, Chocolate Emulco which must be added to taste like Famous Amos. Chocolate emulco is an ingredient to add flavouring and colour to your baking. It is thick and concentrated.
