    FrankB's Note:

    This recipe was part of a few hundred recipes my Aunt had collected from friends and family over the years. It caught my attention because I questioned how chocolate and molasses would team together. As I finished the dough and tasted it I knew I had come across a very unique and wonderful combination. I couldn't wait until they were baked. They were even better. Try adding a vanilla glaze to the top of the cookies and pipe it on in thin lines. It makes them pretty and even tastier!

      These cookies were very soft, falling apart on me. too much molasses flavor with the cocoa. I did not like the mix. I thought I would. Sorry :(

      YUM! These remind me of Russell Stover molasses chews. They are a sophisticated cookie and pack in quite a punch using minimal amounts of ingredients. I added 1/4 tsp salt to offset the molasses. This is now one of my cookie favorites- quite special. My teenagers loved them.

      Excellent cookies. Nice short recipe list which didnt include baking soda as i was out. The taste was remarkably great. Not too sweet at all but definitly not lacking in flavor. Texture was soft and chewey. I made two batches; one with the cocoa and one without. Both were excellent. Used all organic ingredients and found the recipe to be very easy to follow. Thank you for sharing!
