Looking for a lighter alternative to satisfy my craving for something chocolate, I stubbled across the web site These fit the bill and the results were scrumptious. I lightened the orginal recipe by substituting much of the sugar with Splenda.

A nice light chocolate cookie. Just enough chocolate taste to get that craving satisfied. Followed the recipe exactly as written.
