These cookies are great! I added about 2 tablespoons of orange peel and some orange extract to make Death By Chocolate Orange cookies. They were a little chewier than I thought they'd be, but they were good. They weren't overly sweet.

This is a rich, chocolate-y, not too sweet cookie. Wonderful! Just be careful reading the recipe--I thought it called for 2 16-oz packages of chocolate and not 2 8-oz packages. Thanks for a great recipe!

Oooh, Reelani, these are really GREAT! I made them for a departmental function and WOW, they disappeared really fast. I had to cook them a bit longer--more like 20 minutes--but that's probably my oven's fault. Thanks for a well-written, loveable recipe!
