I made these just as the recipe said except the batter was in the fridge for about 2 hours. I baked them for 10 minutes. The batter is quite sticky and moist - like brownie batter, but the cookies turn out perfectly. I gave some to my child's teacher during conference week and I'm sure they helped his grades :)
The smile on my husband's face was worth the cost of these cookies - very expensive with all that chocolate. I used all the recipe called for. I also used instant regular coffee instead of expresso, worked well. I chilled the batter for a couple of hours (had to go out) & still worked properly.
Just made these! Awesome. I was a little worried as the batter was thin but it set up nicely in the fridge. I reduced the semi-sweet chocolate (both 9 oz additions to 6 ozs each). It was just a lot of chocolate. They were still very choclately! I melted the choc and butter in the microwave, worked jsut fine.
