Very yummy. :) I chose to frost them with some chocolate frosting instead of sprinkling with powdered sugar. Unfortunatly, half way into it I realized I was out of flour, so I used whole wheat instead. It seemed to work, though it was a little grainy (if I had to do whole wheat again, I would try to mix it with a little all purpose... but it's a cookie, I don't want to use whole wheat! :P)
These were the hit of the cookie exchange this year! Yum!
I loved this cookie and so did everyone else who tasted it! I have to say though (and this is the only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five)... they are MUCH better hot off the grill. The next day... only so-so. The texture just isn't as nice the next day. But the flavor is lovely... the cinnamon chocolate flavor is what makes these stand out over other recipes, and also the fact that it uses cocoa powder instead of melting down baking chocolate. This makes it much more simple and fast, you're more likely to have the ingredients on hand, and it's cheaper. Thanks for a great recipe! We'll be making these again!
