I followed the recipe using butter instead of margarine. I ended up with flat, wet cookies. Some of the worst cookies I've ever made. Surprised no one had this issue. I never cook with margarine. Is that what makes the difference?

My new favorite cookie! Sweet, chocolatey, chewy, yum! I used 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar, and just 1 cup butter and they turned out perfect! Thanks for the great recipe!

These were excellent cookies. I Doubled the chocolate powder and added a 1/2 teaspoon of instant coffee. Very chocolatey! I only made one mistake. I left the cookies in a bitllonger thinking that they looked uncooked. Big mistake! Stick to the recommended time.

Very good cookies! I will definitely make this chocolate cookie again. I used butter instead of margarine. I used 1 cup sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. I also used about 14-15 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I got 47 nice sized cookies out of one batch.

Followed the recipe to a T and they were flat and were that soft they were running through the cake rack :-( Think next time I will use less margarine. Also to get them like any sort of biscuit I had to cook them for 20 minutes.....They were very chocolatey though

My husband has these for breakfast. Every day. And I make them twice a week. Only variation is that we use half the amount of sugar so that they are not too sweet. But it's just a matter of taste.

I'm one of the few who got super flat cookies. It was as if the batter couldn't hold the chocolate chips. I'm curious if my baking sheets may have had something to do with it. I have one sheet that is morphed; those cookies came out the gooey-ist. But both sheets produced flat cookies. Sad! I also used 3/4 butter and 1/4 butter spread, but surely butter didn't do this.

I followed the recipe to the letter and got wet flat in edible cookies. Had to throw the whole batch out.

These cookies are obnoxiously good! I had to mix up a few things though and use what I had on hand. Instead of margarine I used shortening, and I also used self-rising flour instead of all-purpose, just omitted the salt, and chocolate chunks, not chips. I was a little worried about the time, when I took out the first batch they were crazy gooey in the middle but after I let them cool, they were perfectly perfect! chocolate chocolate chip cookies are my husbands favorite, why I decided to surprise him with this yummy treat. So glad I did, these are his new fav :-)

Oh I can see why you would double these cookies...you could call them Incredible disappearing cookies :) A big hit with my boys, thanks!
