After reading the reviews, I decided to make a few changes, I melted the butter, used 3 squares of semi-sweet choc. and completely omitted the milk, making it more cookie-like & less cake-like. I also added some macadamia nuts. I will definitely do again, following these alterations.

I read all the reviews before I made these and decided to make some changes. I removed a 1/4 of a cup of the flour and substitued it with cocoa. I also removed the milk and added an extra square of chocolate. They were very rich and chocolatey, but more like a cakey brownie bite than a cookie. I also mixed M&M's into the batter to give them some color. They are good, but not what I look for in a cookie.

this is a cakey cookie (not a good or bad thing, just depends on ur taste), and not awefully chocolatey, so instead of adding the last quarter of a cup of flour, i replaced it with unsweetened cocoa powder. being a chocolate freak, i just had to add one last touch, i drizzled half of the cookies in chocolate (not hard, just melt the chocolate, take a spoon and swing it slowly over the cookies) and i dipped the other half of my batch, and with these final touches, they turned out great!!

My family and friends all thought these were amazing! I made them twice, and both times I went easy on the milk, used only 1 and 1/2 cups flour, and added 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to make them extra chocolately. I also put Christmas colored M&Ms in them to make them festive... :)

These surpising little cookies were not at all what I expected.

I did not care for this recipe. WAY too cakey. Not nearly enough chocolate. We put on some blackberries and strawberries on the second batch and I would give that 3 stars. I made them a TON better.
