No-Bake Chocolate Haystack Cookies -- Lower Sugar

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

I modified this from No Bake Chocolate Haystack Cookies, because I wanted a lower-sugar cookie. My target was to try to get one cookie = 15g carbs, which is one dietary carb for those who are counting. Cooking (passive) time = cooling time. Chef#163441 deserves the credit for posting an awesome, yummy and easy cookie recipe!

These were very tasty -- but didn't set up quite like I had wished that they would. Of course, didn't keep us from eating them though!

Delicious! I didn't use walnuts as I realised that I'd run out once I started making them, but they're delicious anyway. They're just the right level of chewiness. Thanks!
