Baked this to the recipe. The mixture was very dry and dusty so 'dripping off the spoon' is not going to happen! I baked them a little bit too long as they felt too gooey after 12 minutes. Wish I'd taken them out at 12 mins and allowed them to settle as mine were slightly burnt and dry. Good simple recipe all the same. Trust the baking times!

amaziiiing chocolatey cookies!turned out very good. I used plain flour as i didn't have self raising and chopped chocolate instead of the chips....turn up great anyway!

I'm normally a one trick pony and just make cup cakes but I fancied a change and I'm so glad I did they taste amazing and so easy to make, I used full measuments and there was enough to feed a small army so I think next time I will half it.yummy

This is the 2nd time I've cooked these - first time as the recipe said, but halved and they were good but I thought a little too cake like. So this time I used plain flour instead of self raising, again halved (made 14 cookies) and they were absolutely delicious!

My two teenage daughters made these tonight and they were a bit hit with everyone. So simple and quick to make although the mixture was very stiff, i had to help with that part. Made them without chocolate chips as I didn't have any in but they were still fab. Left to cool slightly and had them as a dessert with squirty cream.

I will be making them Carol, I have to use gluten free flour, I hope they are as good yours when done thanks.

Gorgeous! Best cookies I've ever tasted, when I took them out of the oven I was sure that they were under done but I left them as the instructions say and they do set perfectly so dont be tempted to leave them in longer!

Fantastic recipe, have made these using m&m's, smarties, maltesers and a mixture. Only problem is they don't last long in our house!
