I made these cookies last night for the first time, and they were oh-so-delicious!! They have an extreme chocolate flavor, but they are not overly sweet. If you're a chocolate lover like me...you will LOVE them! I took them to work today, and everyone else loved them too. I found this recipe on a blog called, "The Cutting Edge of Ordinary". Try them...you'll be glad you did!
