"I did not like this cookie. I made it with peanut butter chips and I thought the chocolate cookie part just did not taste good. Ended up throwing it all out"

"These were super easy and super good! I made them for my son's Valentine's Day party tomorrow, taking sucker sticks and inserting those in after coming out of the oven and then dipping in white chocolate."

"These are good cookies, but I wasn't amazed. Mine came out crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I will keep this recipe in mind, but continue my search for a perfect chocolate cookie."

"Made these for a bbq we're going to tomorrow. I hope I don't eat them all before then. They're fantastic! I used Hershey's Dark Cocoa and dark chocolate chips. Gonna have to try them with peanut butter chips."

"These cookies are really easy and GOOD!! I only had a small handful of chocolate chips and a half bag of butterscotch chips left so I combined them and they were yummy! I cannot wait, however to try these with white chocolate or peanut butter chips as others have stated!!"
