  • Yummy and easy to make. But they definitely need to be refrigerated long enough to keep them from flattening when they bake. - 4/13/12

  • I don't know why this site promoted this recipe as a healthier alternative to brownies. Having 48 cookies on hand, each having 100 calories, doesn't seem like it has any advantage portion-control-wise. - 12/6/11

  • This recipe is directly out of a book called Sticks & Scones by Diane Mott Davidson! You should give proper credit!

    I am always careful to give proper credit when I get a recipe from somewhere else. However, I came by this particular recipe by trial and error and a friend gave it the name. I was not aware of the Sticks and Scones book.

  • Instead of dark chocolate, I used a Limited Edition Dark Chocolate and Mint chip mix...the mint was an interesting taste, and the whole thing was amazing! My friends loved them! They were very easy, and definitely a keeper! - 12/16/10
