"My batter didn't really turn out either. I would make them again because the kids really liked them, but for me, I thought they were not worth the clean-up of my waffle iron."

"These cookies were very cool to make, with the waffle iron. They didn't really have a very strong chocolate flavor though. I made them for Christmas and brought them to school and they went over well. I sprinkled powdered sugar over them to make them look like snowflakes."

"Ok. What did I do wrong? The batter wasn't batter like. It was more like little clumps. These didn't turn out at all. Any ideas?"
