    I tried these and I am really disappointed. They look nothing like the picture. Mine smell wonderful....they have a very strong coffee scent. They flattened out considerably even after being chilled for 24 hours. They are very dark almost like chocolate and very chewy. Any ideas on what I might have done wrong? I am an experienced baker, but this one just did not work for me. I would love to try it again.
