I made these for a cookie exchange, so I made two recipe's worth. They were delicious. I eliminated the espresso and used white flour instead of whole wheat (I know it destroys some of the nutritionals, but I thought the wheat taste would be too strong). The raw batter tasted like chocolate mousse and the baked cookies had a silky texture, consistent throughout. I found that 75 seconds on low/lights was right for my waffle iron. I did not have a nonstick waffle iron, but lightly brushed the plates with canola oil every other time. I have had the leftovers now for almost a week and they are not stale yet...so not sure why recipe says you can only store for one day.

Patti Anderson, a professional quilter, had never entered a cooking contest before she took our challenge. This quick, no-fuss, chewy chocolate cookie is made on your waffle iron. No need to haul out the big mixer, you can mix the batter with a small hand mixer or even by hand. Kids love these!

I made these for a school project in which I had to find healthier versions of classic Christmas cookies. I used this recipe as a healthier version of a pixie or fudge crinkle cookie. I surveyed about 50 people... and only 1/5 of them even liked them! Everyone else thought they were terrible. Some of my comments literally told me to never make them again. I didn't use espresso powder because I had to make these last minute and wasn't sure where to find it, so that may have been part of the problem, however, I cannot imagine that it would improve them very much! All-in-all, these were definitely not a hit
I didnt have a regular waffle maker so I tried my belgium waffle maker I know I know the recipe said not to. well I learned my lesson. so I baked in oven at 350 for 10 mins. Wonderful edges are crunchy but center is gooey
Does anyone know why you can only keep these 1 day? I don't see any point in making 3 dozen cookies if I can't eat them for a few days. What's the point?
What a cool recipe! It makes me want to go out and buy a waffle iron right now! These can only be stored for one day? Why is that?
