MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 5, 2013

"I love the recipe BUT the label for diabetic friendly should be removed. Any recipe calling for 2 cans of ready made frosting that adds flour and sugar to the mix cannot be considered diabetic. But it is a very good recipe and definitely a keeper!"

"I cannot say enough good things about these wonderful cookies. I turn to these cookies every time I get a chocolate craving and they alwasy satisfy. I carry a copy of the recipe whenever I take them anywhere because somebody alwas asks for it. I use 1 can of frosting in the dough and not quite 1 can to frost them. Thanks for a great recipe."
