These cookies were thin and crispy and flavorful. I was leary about trying them, as I ate one of the nibs by itself and it was so bitter! But in the cookies they are sweet and wonderful! I can't wait to make more of them!!

Did i mention they look ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like the pictures!?
Also i would give this ZERO STARS. so i have no idea why my last review left 3. I really like that your website AUTOMATICALLY gives garbage recipes 3 stars even if you try to leave 1. So your website is full of lies- leaving fake 3 star reviews, fake pictures of the recipes, and trash recipes.

These cookies are TRASH. they totally melted in the oven covered my whole cookie sheet and then burned to it. I brought these cacao nibs back from mexico and they were totally ruined. I followed the recipe perfectly. and pulled them out in less than 10 mins because i could smell them burning. SO DISAPPOINTED.

I thought these were good. I cooked them 10 minutes as the recipe said, and they were crisp. They didn't seem burned, but they were darker than I expected. Is that how they should be?
