"I bake every week for my SS class and wanted something diff and my kids love chocolate as much as me lol.I was dissapointed it barely made 3 doz cookies and was very blah tasting. Too much flour and not enough chocolate. I love toh and use this site alot but this cookie needs serious tweaking. BUT for some odd reason my 4-6 yr olds gobbled them up."
"Bland and dry...they do not "melt in your mouth". Look nice, but need milk to wash them down....won't make again."
"Easy to prepare, not to get rid off since its not good,not a whole lot of going on just a ball of flour. Maybe add something in the middle like a dark chocolate to add more taste.i wouldnt recommend this recipe."
"On a whim I added a teaspoon of ancho chili pepper. It really made the chocolate pop! By circumstance, these were left out as we packed up cookies for various destinatins over the course ofa few days and air drying them made them even more chocolately. Easy and delicious."
"These cookies went over Great with family & Friends. So YUMMY!! You have to try them, you will love them!"
