Made with French Herta Chocolate Chip Cookie mix and it worked out SO well! We LOVED these, they were like a Cheesecake Cookie Sandwich. They are VERY rich, and I did leave the chocolate drizzle topping off as I knew we would prefer them without the added sweetness. I also added a few cinnamon chips for an extra dimension! GORGEOUS thanks CoffeeB - made for the recipe tag game! FT:-)

Made these for my other half to take to a weekly meeting he attends &, as usual, kept 4 here for me to cherish, which I did! Did make one change, though, using 2 packages of reduced-fat cream cheese & one of the regular kind! Cream cheese, chocolate, cinnamon, nuts ~ A very satisfying combo!
