MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2013

LOVED this recipe! I didn't have any type of nut so I just left it out. I ate it while it was still warm and it was so chocolaty and gooey! I will definitely be making these again in the near future!

This is an amazing cookie! It's my husbands new favorite chocolate recipe. We didn't have almonds so I used peanuts and we loved it. Will have to make a double or triple recipe next time so we might have some for the next day.
