Beautiful recipe. Delicious, as well as super easy to make. I added some orange zest and juice because I had no vanilla on hand and sprinkled icing sugar on top for decoration. I'm looking forward to making it exactly to recipe next time for pure chocolatey goodness. Thanks!

These are easy, good cookies. The problem is, there isn't a lot of flavor. I'd recommend adding some sort of chips to the batter - chocolate, peanut butter, mint, etc.

Despite what other reviewers said, these weren't chocolatey enough for me. Still after my first tray full, they were a great way to use up leftover chips. I mixed some dough with mint chips, some with butterscotch and some with chocolate chips and walnuts and cooked up the rest of the batch. Not bad.

These are more of a cake-y cookie. After trying the first batch that came out I was tempted to put the dough in a deep pan and bake like a cake or make muffins... I don't know if something didn't go well or that's the way they should be. Flavor was OK.

These have a good chocolate flavor.
