A bit too chocolaty for my liking though my daughter just loved them. I think I'd made again but maybe halve the amount of cocoa. We'll see how that goes. Thanks for sharing.

We made these as drop cookies and filled some with Recipe #264991 for an added treat. These cookies are crisp, and very chocolaty! The dough has a texture of refridgerator cookie dough. While adding the dry and wet ingredients it took a bit of coaxing for the ingredients to come together and it seemed to be too dry, but I stayed true to the recipe and found they turned out just the right consistency. Thanks for posting this nice chocolate lovers' recipe! ~Buddha

Great tasting cookies! Certainly not the soft, chewy kind, but that was OK by me, 'cause I found them to be exceptional for dunking into hot chocolate, as well as crumbled over some frozen peach yogurt! And just so you know, they were in the oven just a hair under 8 minutes! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]
