I made these cookies last night for a late night snack. Since I didn't have bakers chocolate on hand, I substituted 4 tablespoons melted margarine and 3/4 cup cocoa for it (as per's recommendations). The cookies came out tasting kind of like little pieces of chocolate cake with a lightly crunchy sugary exterior. Overall, they were cheap, easy to make, and delicious - so much so that I am pretty sure these are going to be the cookies I give everyone as presents for Christmas 2010. Thanks!
