Wow. These cookies are not for the faint of heart. They are intense! I made them to refute my roommates' assertion that everything I make "tastes healthy." And they do NOT TASTE HEALTHY : ) They're delicious. My roommates -- and my coworkers -- greatly appreciated these. They are a certain crowd pleaser!
