"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."

"This sounds really good and easy, but question, do you put the lid down as making the waffles? Or just cook open?"

"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?"
