Good I like this recipe and would make it again. It was pretty easy to make and tasted really good. March 20, 2013
Yummy, chocolatey, and good looking! I used 1/4 cinnamon chips - wow, nice touch! These are a gift so I am glad to see how nicely they baked. Mine needed the full 10 minutes at 325 convection. Would love to figure out a way to make the background batter taste like a darker chocolate ( better cocoa?) but these are great just as is. March 13, 2013
Brownie-Delish The recipe is super easy, and you can vary the taste of the cookies with the type of chips used. Mint is great Peanut butter even better Whte and Dark Chocolate for that chocoholic in your life. I cannot keep these cookies on the plate over two days! February 24, 2013
overall good recipe I love brownies and cookies and this one has both and chips. I used milk chocolate chips and added a little extra. This was a very easy recipe and I will be making them again. February 24, 2013
Love this one! I make this with a variety of different chips - sometimes with a combination of mint and chocolate chips, sometimes with different darkness levels of chocolate chips (milk and dark), sometimes with cinnnamon and chocolate chips and then I add cinnamon to the dry ingredients too. What a great and versatile recipe when you want a good chocolate cookie that has a good chew feel to it!! February 5, 2013
Wonderful! Cookies turned out excellent. I was nervous because this is the first recipe I made from scratch all by myself. They turned out great though! If I can do it, you can do it! December 23, 2012
Phenomenal! Best cookie I've ever tasted! If you love chocolate chip cookies and adore brownies, this gives you the best of both in a cookie! I added 1 cup of nuts to the recipe as written and got rave reviews! You won't be disappointed! December 19, 2011
