Sticky. I used cooking spray on my hands to prevent sticking. They're yummy though!

I was out of cocoa and substituted with Ghirardelli chocolate hazelnut hot cocoa mix. I also didn't want to wait for the dough to chill so i spread the batter in a 8x10 pan and sprinkled it with broken peanut butter cups. It produced a cake like brownie. Baked it for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick came out clean. The office crew loved them.

very dry should have added peanut butter cups into cookie dough and maybe a little less flour

Delicious! I don't use artificial sweetners, so I substituted 1 cup of regular sugar. These were a hit on my Christmas cookie tray!
