Chocolate Banana Cookies

If you like chocolate and you like bananas, then you will love these cookies.  The recipe came from my Grandma and has been passed down through our family.  Just as my Grandma and mom made them for my sister and me, I now make them for my family.  My sixteen-month old son loves them.  They are so soft and moist that they practically melt in your mouth.
