Chewy chocolate chews

I found these cookies to be very moist, chewy and easy to make. I put the dough in the refrigerator for a few hours; that made them easier to drop. I also added chocolate chips instead of nuts. This is a keeper for my family.

Good without nuts

These were a big hit at my work. Instead of nuts I added candy coated chocolate pieces.

They were so easy to make & my crowd just loved them. Next time I will have to bake 2 batches because they were so ummy & the coconut did the trick!

Chocolatey but fragile

Intense chocolate flavor. Once baked and cooled, I found these cookies to be extremely fragile.

Not my favorite, too chocolatey. I took them to work and for the most part, people liked them. For those of you who like an intense chocolate flavor, this is the cookie for you.

I made these cookies last night. They are soooo good. I love these cookies and will make them often. Took them to a card game and they were gone in minutes. They all want me to bring more to the next game.

Intense chocolate taste

by C. Cathy , CUPERTINO, CA on Jan. 2005

These are quick and easy to make and they have an intense dark chocolate taste. I made them with walnuts. Next time I'll try them with coconut. These were well-received by my husband, my friends, and my co-workers.
