Tried these for christmas baking! They are the easiest best tasting cookies that a chocolate lover could ask for. I had many great compliments on these. They remind me of chocolate fudge brownies. Would be great without the chocolates on top if you didn't have them on hand!!! YUM!!

This is a great recipe. I was looking for something to make for a cookie exchange. I tested them out on my family for dessert at my sister-in-laws and they were a hit. Easy and delicious. Don't overcook though, 8 mins. is plenty!

I just made these last night. I thought they might be a little dry, but they turned out great! I did have trouble finding the Butterfinger Jingles, but I did find the Nestle Crunch Jingles. I also refrigerated the dough for 30 minutes to make them easier to handle. My family loved them!
