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.

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!

I also halved the recipe as i was worried they might not turn out nice! How wrong i was!!! Beautiful, if you can wait and leave them to cool properly, they taste even better. Plus very easy to make. Will definitely make them again.

Delicious! I halved the recipe and ended up with 12 decent sized chunky cookies, the only mistake I made was leaving them in for a couple of minutes longer as they didn't look done enough so they were a bit dry around the edges. Next time I will flatten them a bit before putting in the oven and will take them out after 12 minutes as per the recipe.
