    Used different ingredients. It took 20 minutes to cook them instead 10 like the recipe says, than i used white sugar, 400g instead 440, then I used 360g MnM's instead 300g chocolate chips. Gorgeous!!!  -  15 Dec 2010


    I have quite a lot of experience at baking which i love, but i am no delia smith! I made these cookies today, and they have come out quite nice, but are far too sweet for my tooth, i think the next time i make these i will use 300g of white sugar instead of the 440g of Brown sugar, and i will cut down the choc chip to 100g as 300g is way too much, also mine took 30 mins to cook, not the 10 minutes as on the recipie, although very nice these cookies are, they could be alot better, as not everyone likes cookies that are farr too rich  -  19 Aug 2011


    4tablespoons is a lot of dough for one cookie-i think it should read 4 teaspoons-even they came out large! And I reduced the amount of choc chips as over 300g is far too much! But lovely though,yummy!  -  04 Aug 2011
