These are really good. I looked over a few of these similar recipes, and decided that this one seemed the easiest. Glad I did! So far, they have been sitting for about 7 minutes, had to take a taste and they are delicious. Still warm, I couldn't resist. :P I used about 4 Tbsp's of cocoa, as I love a dark chocolatey flavour, I also didn't use nuts, but did toss in a couple handfuls of coconut. These are very very rich.

Fabulous! I substituted Splenda for the sugar and low fat spread for the butter and they turned out great! I also halved the recipe since there are only two of us...and one of us (namely me) has been known to eat cookies until they are gone! I will absolutely make this recipe again and again.
