These deeply fudgy cookies are a great way to make a friend. A little espresso powder in the dough makes them even more over-the-top. —Rebecca Cababa, Las Vegas, Nevada

"Delicious and very easy to make-loved the fact I didn't have to get out my mixer. I used my large cookie scoop, but not the 1/4 cup size and got 31 nice sized cookies. It was a bit tricky to get them done, but not over-baked, so I watched them closely. I melted the chocolate and butter together in the microwave on 50% power, a minute at a time, until it was melted, stirring after each minute. Took only 3 minutes. And, I didn't have chocolate chunks, so I used a package of semi-sweet melting wafers I'd been looking for something to use them in. Very chocolatey, delicious cookie!"

"These are the best of both worlds- the chocolately soft center of a brownie, with the crisp edges of a cookie. I knew right off the bat that I wouldn't be using the chocolate called for- I am the only dark chocolate fan, and 60% would be way too much for my guys. I used Nestle Dark chocolate chips instead, which are 53%. And even though it says the espresso powder is optional, I highly recommend it. You don't taste COFFEE, it just brings out the chocolate flavor."

"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'."

"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."
