"Oh yes, I will definitely make these again!! So moist and chocolaty, and the batter was very light and fluffy. This one is a keeper for sure. If any of my co-workers are reading this, I'll be bringing these in soon! Great recipe!"

"Have made it before, but switched to pumpkin spice pudding and toffee chips for the Holidays. Yummy. Daughter said it tastes like a pumpkin snickerdoodle!

Not sure if my oven is running low... taking about 13 minutes to bake."

"Love the ease of this recipe and using the pudding instead of baking cocoa for the extra chocolate. Its now a standard in my house!"
