** Softened coconut oil is a delicious replacement for the butter! It tastes so good, I'm tempted to make shortbread out of it, without the chocolate...but with the chocolate it tastes like Mounds candy bar!
This cookie dough is rich, and I am finding I like to savor it in small little pinches...I haven't had the equivalent of a whole cookie yet, but I have the satisfying feeling like I've indulged! It reminds me of eating fudge...a little goes a long way. Unless, of coarse, you are staying up late watching a movie in fuzzy pajamas with a tub full and a big spoon! ;)
Of course you could find more dignified, and creative, cute ways to serve it, like freezing it in cute star shaped ice cube molds, or rolling into balls or slicing into cubes (like fudge), or as a dip with animal or graham crackers, I suppose! Or as an ice-cream topping/ mix-in. Yummm!
