When I made these cookies for my boys while they were growing up, it was a real challenge to keep them away from the kitchen to let these cookies cool. I still make these mouthwatering morsels for my "boys" today. —Ardys Smith, Palo Alto, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 17, 2013

Just made these and they're delicious. I made them exactly as directed and flattened slightly as stated using a fork dipped in flour. I'm guessing the cookies in the photo are made extra large because you only get 12 chocolate rectangles in each candy bar; 5 x 12=60 pieces. There's not enough chocolate to put two on each cookie and not enough room on each cookie to put more than one piece. I'll be making these again at Christmas!

Very tasty, very easy and I ended up with exactly 5 sheets of 12 cookies.

Nothing special, made exactly like the recipe directed. I would rather have made chocolate chip cookies than spending the time to make these. Nothing special that would make me want to do it again! I've baked for over forty years and I'm sorry to say these were not very good.
