"This fudgy cookie flattens and crackles open during baking, hence the lava reference." An awesome chocolate fudge cookie recipe by Julie Van Rosendaal.

Top Review by Sarah

Maybe I did something wrong but when I'd mixed everything together I got a powdery mass. I think it may be that everyhting settles a little strangly before it gets here (I'm in Japan right now) so that may have been part of it but I had no luck with this recipe.
