Directions

4Drop by rounded teaspoon onto prepared cookie sheets.
5Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes or just until set (cookies will be soft when pressed).

    These were pretty good, just not very sweet. I ended up using 1/2 c. sugar plus 1/8 c. hot water for my 'karo syrup' since I didn't have any and the mixture was too dry so I added more water until It turned into more of a cake batter. I put them in mini cupcake pans so I had little chocolate muffins - 9/28/09

    A more accurate rating would be 9.5! I thought they were a fabulous alternative to full fat, full calorie chocolate cookies- perfect for winter day cravings. :) I replaced with half sugar, half splenda and half whole wheat flour, half white flour and came up with 1 and 1/2 dozen cookies. Delicious! - 1/16/10

    I made these and I thought they were very bland. I did not like them at all. However, my husband thought they were ok, and that's why I'm not rating them as bad, but in my opinion, they were bad. But hey, for 36 calories not much is expected. - 4/13/09

    AMAZING! I have officially fallen in love!! Even my super picky younger brother ate them!! *And that is a task in itself to have him taste them!** I will be making these on a regular basis!! BUT- I will be making them when a man is around so he can stir! They are not the easiest to stir.... - 1/25/11

    My 5 and 3 year old helped me make these and they LOVED them. A much better option then full fat and full sugar cookies. My 1 year old adores them as well. A great way to satisfy that sweet chocolate craving without going overboard! :) - 4/12/10

    For 36 calories a cookie...they are amazing. They almost have a toasted marshmallow texture when still warm. I will definetely make these again...my 5 year old and 2 year old helped me and now they are helping me eat a few!

    If you have an urge for a sweet snack, these are the way to go.

    The calories are off. You say to use karo syrup, but your nutrition calculator, you used light pancake syrup. Obviously was intentional seeing as how spark has a couple dozen different entries for karo syrup. Also, the picture is CLEARLY not the cookies in this actual recipe. - 7/5/12

    These were absolutely terrible!! I don't understand how anyone could like them. They taste like flour. I even doubled the sugar, making them 50 calories a piece. I hate overly sweet desserts so it wasn't me. They definitely taste "diet" and they might be low calorie but certainly aren't "healthy". - 1/23/12

    These are amazing! I made these twice and used Cary's sugar free pancake syrup instead of Karo each time. I used all white flour the first time and a blend of white/wheat the second time, which resulted in a more dense cookie. I sprinkled crushed peppermint on top for holiday cheer - delish! - 12/25/10

  • The cookie dough was super dry, so I added a tbsp of natural applesauce. I also added an egg yolk to it to improve the texture. I also changed the white flower to whole wheat flour (King Arthur's has a good texture). The result was better than strictly following the recipe. - 8/9/12

  • OMG!!!! Cookie perfection! I was a little concerned making these after reading some comments about them not being sweet enough however they were PERFECT. Not as sweet as a traditional cookie but they didn't need to be, they taste like brownie bites. Yum Yum Yum. Thank you so much for posting =) - 1/21/12

  • Super tasty cookies! Dieting isn't all bad when you get to eat chocolate cookies! :)
    For those who find it hard to stir...I used my hands and kneaded the dough...worked perfect and super easy. - 11/13/11
