Reviews for Jumbo Brownie Cookies
"I used Ghiardelli Chocolate and the espresso powder. I might leave the powder out next time. Delicious and fudgy and my husband and son loved them. I will definitely make again. I used a 2 TBSP scoop and got about 24 cookies."
"I love this recipe, super easy but found it hard to drop by the 1/4 cup as I kept trying to do too many on a cookie sheet. So I put in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes to firm up batter. Then I rolled and baked to make homemade oreo cookies. Can someone say 'hello cookie monster'."
"1 cookie has 350 calories and 48 g carbs and 65 mg of sodium - I used the regular chocolate chips - and unsalted butter an no other salt... wasn't too bad - but will not b making these again! yuck..."
"3 Stars because this is a question (wish there was another way) so don't scold me.Anyone tried making this as a bar cookie. I want to cut out with heart shaped cutter."
"Amazing! I made these on two separate occasions this week and they were a hit each time! I substituted the chocolate chunks and did half with mint chips and the other half with white chocolate chips. I left out the espresso powder. I also used less than a 1/4 cup for smaller cookies. I will absolutely make these again!"
"These are fabulous. I left out the espresso powder since some of my family aren't coffee fans, and these are now my son's favorite cookie. They've become an instant Christmas tradition."
"I bake cookies all the time. Worst cookies I ever made. I am a chocoholic and couldn't even eat these. Way too sweet even making the cookie smaller. Nobody in my family could eat them. Threw them out."
"I'm giving these 5 stars even though I haven't made them yet! I'll figure out a way to lessen the fat content later. In the meantime, lighten up. Not all recipes, especially this time of year, need to be low-fat, low-sugar, blah blah. You want less? EAT LESS. That simple. Lighten up, people!"
"THESE COOKIES ARE AWESOME! I HAVE USED SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHIPS. PEPPERMINT AT THE HOLIDAYS, WHITE CHOCOLATE FOR COLOR CONTRAST AND THE CHOCOLATE CHUNKS AS RECIPE CALLS FOR. I USE A COOKIE SCOOP TO MAKE MINE, THUS SMALLER AND I ADJUST THE COOKING TIME TO SLIGHTLY LESS."
