I followed all of the directions completely and they turned out terrible. Litterally a pile of smarties
I made these with my grade 10 Food and Nutrition classes with pink and red Smarties for Valentine's Day. They turned out well BUT the recipe calls for WAY too many chocolate chips. I divided it by two for my 2nd class to try. I followed previous reviewers suggestions of reducing the time to bake down to 10 minutes.
Whoever posted this recipe probably needs a new oven. I set my oven to 325 and set the time for the minimum posted in the recipe, 18 minutes (which I thought was long to begin with). They were done after 12 and had I not bothered to check them, they would have been garbage as they were on the cusp of beginning to burn slightly. I'd say 10-12 minutes tops at 325.<br/><br/>That said, these cookies were pretty tasty. In fact, my little guy wants to make them again so Santa Clause can try them tonight.
Not exactly sure what when wrong. I followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with dry, brittle cookies that stuck to the pan. The stars I have awarded are for the flavour only. You may consider using non-stick spray on your cookie sheet.
Delicious! These cookies are full of yummy goodness with the Smarties and the chocolate chips - so good! If you don't have Smarties, which are Canadian candy-coated chocolates, you could use M&M's but I prefer the Smarties. I made these as listed, using a cookie dough scoop so I ended up with about 2 dozen regular size cookies. Made for my adopted chef for PAC 2011. Thanks nortocbaking101! :)
