We were really disappointed in these cookies after all the glowing reviews. The flavor had a particularly dry dark chocolate feel, even for having so much bittersweet chocolate. We did bake them 9 minutes, and they do have a softer interior consistency still. We won't be making again.
This sounds absolutely delicious -- thanks for the comments, everybody -- and I'll try them out this week.
These cookies were delicious, EXTREMELY rich and decadent. I tried the peanut butter version as well but I actually thought that was too much. Would love to try the nutella version this year, though I wonder if that one might be too rich as well. Nevertheless, so yummy!
This is chocolate heaven! I just made the plain cookie with no filling. I pressed the cookie balls with the tines of a greased fork before baking for a more uniform appearance and sprinkled with powdered sugar once they were fully cooled. Very rich!
Very rich and chocolaty....need I say more? Where are the variations for peppermint, etc?
This recipe is wonderful. The cookies are so incredibly decadent, you can be satisfied with just one. I am making my third batch this weekend. I agree with the other reviewer; cook the cookies for 9 minutes instead of eight. That extra minute really makes a difference. They were still moist, yet not raw as when cooked for eight. Also, instead of the sandwich style (proved to be too messy and used up twice the amount of cookies) I just frosted the top and sprinkled them with the candy cane crumbles. Yummy! You must make these.
I made these for a cookie exchange party. Everyone LOVED them! For extra flavor I sprinkled them with crumble Heath Bar Crunch pieces before baking and renamed them Chocolate Heath Bar Crunch Chews... excellent!
These are soooo good! They're *seriously* chocolate-y. I made the variation with the peppermint filling, but I think I'll be trying them all. My best new discovery in this year's holiday baking binge--definitely a keeper! My only suggestion is that I cooked them 9 minutes instead of 8--at 8 they seemed almost undercooked, but at 9 they were still plenty soft.
