Ugh, sorry for the late review but I remember doing this a few weeks ago and remembered how we liked it alot! Prep time was quick, made it at dawn to bring it with me on a field trip and was glad that with all the rush, it was so quick to make! Shared this with some friends and remembered how they keep nodding and saying "you made it?" "it's good! It's good!" Then they'd get again. lol Thanks to your recipe, they think I'm good! lol Made for Aus tag #25.

Made up a variety of cookies for some guests I had last night & these little goodies were a GREAT HIT! For me it was the double dose of chocolate! Definitely a keeper of a recipe, & thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]
