I cut the recipe in half. I followed all directions, but did a few things differently. I used an ice cream scoop to form the dough onto the cookie sheet. That way the dough is firmly packed. I then pressed down a little on the dough to flatten it to about 3/4 inch thick. I put the cookie sheet in the fridge for about 10 minutes, then into the oven. That way they didn't spread out all over the pan (that happens when the butter in the recipe goes from already warm and soft to hot and liquidy!) and they still held a perfect cookie shape. I don't like cookies with so much chocolate, but my boyfriend loved them for Valentine's Day as this is a recipe his mom always used to make!

This recipe does not work. Don't waste your time. You need the one with more baking soda. The lack of baking soda causes the cookies to come out so flat. Read other reviews. You shouldn't have to add flour after the fact. Use another monster cookie recipe.

This recipe was delicious. We added about 1/4 cup of flour so that they would be a little firmer.

Again, I'm not a large cookie fan (esspecially those filled with chocolate) BUT, despite my bias, these are pretty tasty and my family really enjoyed them. They make ALOT!!! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of them yet but we had no problems making them. Maybe I'll try halving the recipe next time and see if success can still be achieved.

My first tray ended up all over the bottom of my oven because it ran over the sides... then I had to scrape everything off, so I ended up with bits nothing like cookies. I thought a recipe with no flour was weird, but i saw the review of 4 stars, and the pic picture posted so I went for it. NEVER AGAIN. I managed to work enough flour into the remaining dough so they didnt spread everywhere... but very unhappy with these!

Wish I would of read the reviews first! I have made monster cookies similar to this one and they were all SO good, these were flat and terrible, waste of money & time!

Monster cookies are supposed to be BIG and full of goodies... These looked like flat puddles. They tasted fine but they are not appealing at ALL. Do not use this recipe if you want big fluffy cookies. I added extra baking soda and flour and it did not help
