Ratings & Reviews

    I gave this one another shot! Much better results! This time I used EXACTLY the ingredients listed. (Last time I used a "similar" brownie mix and it was too dry.) Mixed up much nicer and the finishe cookie is much nicer! I ended up getting the best results with almost 10 minutes cooking time however - my oven actually runs a bit warm and the cookies still weren't done at 8 minutes. Still had trouble keeping the hugs from melting. I ended up putting them in the fridge to cool them quickly. I know these are going to be a big hit with friends at work!
