Fantastic. Easy and just what I was looking for! They taste perfect and are indeed chewy and fat! I used a regular sized ice-cream scoop and could only fit 9 on one pan. They ran together a bit, so in the future I will go with 6 per pan or just use a smaller scoop. I also stuffed a piece of baking chocolate in the center of each and it worked out great! At this size Ii had to bake in the convection oven at 325 for 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing this!
