    A very easy recipe for chewy chocolate cookies. The cookie dough is flavoured with your favourite shop-bought chocolate sauce (though you could try using melted chocolate in a pinch), then studded with roughly chopped chocolate chunks. Heaven!

    Best cookie recipe I've found yet. I cant see them lasting very long in the tin! Lovely.  -  09 Apr 2013


    i have replaced chocolate sauce with Nutella and it has worked wonderfully. crunchy on the edge and chewy in the middle. very easy to make and very moorish, definitely going to add it to my repertoire! thanks for this recipe!  -  04 Apr 2013


    Sorry but this recipe was a very big disappointment...the recipe itself was picked out by my husband which looked and sounded very good but the cookies themselves were not. They were a light brown, beyond flat, rock hard and with trying every way possible to bake them including changing cookie sheets to refrigerating the dough before baking them, they still did not turn out and absolutely nothing seemed to work!!! I made these cookies not once but twice because I figured that I had forgotten something in the first batch but not only did I use new baking soda (? why they are so flat) but also payed close attention to the recipe and did everything right the second time (I think) with no satisfaction. The dough was great and tasty but only before baking.  -  04 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
