I had all the ingredients on hand except the semi sweet chips, so I used dark chocolate chips instead. I think I like these even better than the traditional chocolate crinkles, the flavor and the texture are amazing. These definitely will be a repeat recipe!

I dip a wet spoon in the dough to avoid stickiness even when using a mini cookie scoop. It makes things much faster. I also make a mocha version by adding espresso chips and/or espresso concentrate to the mix. Then I push a chocolate covered espresso bean in the top of each cookie before baking to help identify the coffee ones from the regular chocolate ones. I've also added carmel to both recipes with caramel chips and a caramel drizzle over the top. I prefer using mini chocolate chips or chopping the regular size chips.

These were very good. I agree with other reviewers as I added between 1/3 and 1/2 cup more flour and did refrigerate the dough and it did make a difference. I have made these several times and will make again.

Very disappointed, way to runny. Ended up making a pan of brownies. Guess I will be going back to my original recipe that I have used before.

very easy chocolate cookie that tastes great. I do add more flour and refrigerate the dough before rolling to cut down on the sticky gooeyness when they are being rolled in the sugar.

YUMMY!!! So easy to make and definitely satisfies a chocolate lover's craving.

These cookies are very good but with a few modifications. I used a Betty Crocker mix and it was, as others said, very moist. I added about 1/3C extra flour and refrigerated the dough. This helped but it still couldn't be rolled into balls until it was rolled in the powdered sugar. Next time I might add 1/2C of extra flour or decrease the water. In it's moist state it was a two person operation to roll them. One person to scoop dough into the powdered sugar and one to coat and roll into balls. I also found they needed to be baked more like 12-13 minutes to set. However, the end result is a soft, very chocolaty cookie.

I tried this recipe for the first time. I did adjust the recipe by adding 1 tsp. vanilla extract. I found that it worked best for me to bake these cookies at 7 to 8 minutes as I have an electric oven now! I also rolled the cookies in the sugar AFTER I'd baked them as the dough was very sticky, even after standing 1/2 hour as recipe suggested! I did share 1/2 of these cookies with the coffee shop at my retirement community and I was told that they won raves! A word of caution: I've found these cookies to be quite delicate! Handle with care! (I'm serious as I'd noticed that they can break easily and WEREN'T too easily removed from pans, even though I did grease them!)delowenstein

I live at high altitude but didn't adjust the flour as I ordinarily would, but I definitely should have - maybe even by 50%. Instead, I increased the baking time by 50% and they were still pretty fudgy. But this is from a gal who'd eat the dough anyway.

The flour took away form the brownie flavor and they stuck to pan even sprayed or parchment paper. Great appearance but would not make again or recommend.
