Reviews for Double Chocolate Chipotle Cookies
"Made per recipe--excellent!"
"A chocolatey cookie with a slightly savory aftertaste!"
"Fantastic! I didn't have any chipotle, that's why, instead of it I added cayenne pepper. In total, it was about 3 teaspoons. It might seem a bit too spicy, but it was all right! Everybody loved them, even those, who don't eat spicy food)"
