"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."
