  1. These were fast, simple, and a hit among all ages at our neighborhood BBQ. Substitutions: gluten free flour (to accommodate allergies) and hazelnuts (that’s what I had). Definitely let them cool before spreading chocolate, then cool again in the fridge before cutting. Based on other reviews regarding sweetness, I cut them smaller than other tray - Read more ...
  2. easy and fun for the grand daughter to make!!
  3. I made this recipe exactly as it says and they turned out great. I cut them into long rectangles because they are very rich and a small cookie is enough for one person. Sort of reminded me of of a chocolate covered shortbread cookie. One pan made so many cookies! I will be using this - Read more ...
  4. This was just okay for me and my family. But I am wondering if it didn't turn out because I baked it in a 9x13 cake pan. Next time I will use the cookie sheet.
  5. These are really good. I followed the recipe and was glad I did. I read the reviews, but I barely had enough chocolate. Glad I followed the recipe.
  6. YUMMY! I have made this 5 times now and this was very good a great find.... I prefer pecans to walnuts as i find walnuts little to bitter! I like to grind the nuts more to make them finer and not so crunchy! Spreading the batter on to the parchment paper is a bit tricky - Read more ...
  7. These are rather good altho they're pretty rich. My dad complained that he couldn't eat very many at a time because of all the sugar. Maybe use a little less if you have a low sugar tolerence. Oh and a mistake i made was putting the chocolate on before the cookie part hardened/ cooled enough... - Read more ...
  8. Liked this recipe. It was very easy and quick. I think toasted almonds would have made this even better.
