When I saw and heard about these cookies, I could not wait to make them! I was SO disappointed! The flavor is FLAT! It needs like cocoa powder or hazelnut flavoring. The dough is truly easy to work with and they are very easy to make. It just did nothing for me! Even my kids (they eat anything) did not care for them at all. As I always say..."

I really enjoyed this cake. yes the timing is way off! i baked mine for 50 minutes and I'm in Indiana. The bottom is very dense like a brownie! the cheesecake is very chocolatey and really needs the mousse to lighten up the the chocolate.

This was awesome! not as hard as I thought it would be. Next time I won't use all the liquid... it made it a little bit soupy. not a lot just slightly. I also used graham cracker crumbs like he said on tv. I also used 2.5 sticks of butter. I figured, I could always melt more. Very impressive dish. Pretty too!"

This was very good. Next time I'm cutting the cocoa powder. I think 1/2 to 2/3 is plenty. I also made mine in a 9x13 which 30 min at 350 seemed to be a bit much. 30 at 325 next time. I was being lazy and didn't check it at 25min like I should have. It is a nice cake though."
