After reading the reviews I decided to make a few changes I melted the butter used 3 squares of semi-sweet choc. and completely omitted the milk making it more cookie-like & less cake-like. I also added some macadamia nuts. I will definitely do again following these alterations. Read More

I read all the reviews before I made these and decided to make some changes. I removed a 1/4 of a cup of the flour and substitued it with cocoa. I also removed the milk and added an extra square of chocolate. They were very rich and chocolatey but more like a cakey brownie bite than a cookie. I also mixed M&M's into the batter to give them some color. They are good but not what I look for in a cookie. Read More

this is a cakey cookie (not a good or bad thing just depends on ur taste) and not awefully chocolatey so instead of adding the last quarter of a cup of flour i replaced it with unsweetened cocoa powder. being a chocolate freak i just had to add one last touch i drizzled half of the cookies in chocolate (not hard just melt the chocolate take a spoon and swing it slowly over the cookies) and i dipped the other half of my batch and with these final touches they turned out great!!

My family and friends all thought these were amazing! I made them twice and both times I went easy on the milk used only 1 and 1/2 cups flour and added 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to make them extra chocolately. I also put Christmas colored M&Ms in them to make them festive...:) Read More
