When I made these cookies instead of "marbling" in the cocoa I stirred it in completely so it was a chocolate chocolate chip cookie. Read More

I loved the idea of a marbled chocolate chip cookie so I was anxious to try this. I noticed that the ingredient list called fo for water and yet it was not specified as to how it was to be used in the instructions. I put two and two together and figured it was to moisten the cocoa but this should be clarified. Also in terms of marbling I think it would be better to divide the dough into two portions and add the cocoa to one portion so that you have a dark dough that can then be folded into the light one. I think this would allow for a more even marbling with less stirring. Read More

These are good cookies but... not the cookie for my family. They don't have that sweet tollhouse cookie taste to them. While it was fun to try something different I won't be making them again. Read More

These remained chewy with lots of chocolate chips. I found they made more than the 5 dozen. More like 7 generous cookies. Read More

i just made these cookies and they didn't last a day. i made them with chocolate chips and white chocolate chips; they were tasty. i split the cookie dough up before adding the cocoa powder. i think that help not to over blend the cookie dough so it wouldn't end up being all chocolate. Read More

The cookies are good if you like cake like cookies. I added both chocolate chips and M&M's. The cookies were really sweet!! Next time I would cut the sugar back. I also did half shortening and half butter. I did seperate dough before adding cocoa powder. Read More

I increased the water to 1/2. This was an accident but the cookies still turned out fine. I also took the advice of another baker and split the dough in 1/2 and added the cocoa to only half; then slightly mixed the two halves together to create the marbling. The less you mix the better the marbling when you scoop out our cookies. They tasted like Toll House cookies but visually much prettier. Read More
