I initially couldn't decide whether I wanted to make brownies or cookies and these cookies are the perfect compromise! Instead of chocolate squares I threw in a cup or so of semi-sweet chocolate chips and it worked out just fine. The cookies are very very chocolatey but NOT very sugary sweet. Excellent! Read More

I also found this cookie to be very cake like. I put mint chocolate chips in them. I was trying to make something like chocolate chip cookies but with a chocolate cookie and mint chips and this just did not do it for me. I should have listened to the other reviews on this one. Read More

Excellent recipe lovely chocolatey flavour-not too sweet nor too firm lovely soft centred cookies. Easy to follow recipe I just had to add a little extra flour to mine say 2 or 3 tablespoons to get it to a stiff dough shaping the balls was easy and my 3 1/2 year old daughter loved helping. A great recipe to try with kids! Read More

These weren't bad but they were somewhat plain. The texture was similar to that of a brownie and their flavor a dark barely sweetened chocolate. I think they could be vastly improved with peanut butter chips instead of the chocolate although the chocolate on chocolate combination really is nice if you're craving some dark chocolate flavor. Not a bad starting point for chocolate peanut butter chip cookies. Read More

I mixed in food processor until dough ball formed very easy and cookies came out perfectly. I also scooped with a 1 inch ice cream scoop that was dampened every 2 cookies. I used semi sweet chocolate chips in place of chopped chocolate and added a teaspoon of vanilla.. Like another reviewer suggested I put an additional few Tbs of flour making them less cake like with a nice chew These are not too sweet and very satisfying when the chocolate craving strikes.

I wasn't impressed. I thought they were dry with little flavor unless you bit into the chocolate pieces. Read More

These really hit the spot. They are cakey like brownies and very chocolatey but not too sweet. I had a little trouble rolling the dough into balls as it was really sticky. And I kept the oven temperature a little higher so that the cookies would be firm on the outside but soft on the inside. When I asked my husband if he could think of any improvements he said "Yes - make more of them!" Read More
