These cookies are great! Very tasty!

These were really quick and easy to make. I did not have any NESTLES CRUNCH HEARTS - so I used NESTLES CRUNCH BARS broken into pieces. The hearts would be PERFECT to make really nice Valentine cookies though! Hopefully I will be able to find the hearts around that time. The cookies are wonderful. We kept popping one in our mouth every time we walked by the plate!

Chocolate lovers delite!

Very good cookie with many variations possible. My family likes this dough rolled in finely chopped nuts and topped with a caramel chocolate kiss. I also found that the butter should be softened to room temp, but not melted.

Excellent & Easy!

These cookies are too easy to make! They have a fabulous taste and kids will go wild over them! Adults too! The chocolate hearts do take quite a long time to completely set, though. Double the recipe! You'll need a lot of these!
