Reviews for Cocoa Surprise Cookies
"These are beautiful and delicious. I did grease my cookie sheets as a precaution, but I did not have the sticking problem described by fnstlug. My marshmallows were not fresh; they worked perfectly and held their shape. These will go well as a contrast on a cookie tray!"
"Super chocolatey and amazing. My only problem was with the marshmallows melting and seriously sticking to the pan. Some of cookies didn't make it. Next time, I will make sure the marshmallows are stuck only to the top of the cookies and grease the pan for good measure. PS Made with 60% cocao chips--such a good choice."
"love the texture!!! crunchy on the outside and ooey gooey on the inside! and to top it off its soo easy to make!"
"Cocoa surprise cookies are a family favourite in our home and one we make whenever we want a special dessert. They're definitely a keeper and going in my recipe box."
