    these were oober yummy! i also used a little less cocoa, half the vanilla, half the salt, and i used bisquick instead of flour (yeah... i ran out of flour 8]). the special dark cocoa worked really well with these. i like my cookies on the softer side so i found that 8 minutes was perfect. i recommend these for any time... and they are especially perfect for those random chocolate cravings. 8)
    These are great cookies--easy to make and bigs hits with my kids! I decreased the amount of cocoa since I ran out last time I made these, and found I liked them even better with less cocoa.
