    Delicious

    Georgia Holt from Bronxville, NY

    I made this last night for my family and we loved it. I used tons more garlic and onions and only 3 cups of water. Next time I'll luse my food processor instead of the blender and I think the processing will be quicker instead of doing it in batches. Definitely a keeper.

    very tasty

    I cooked the carrots first for about 10 min. to speed time on the recipe and it tasted very good, so easy to make.

    Carleen from

    This is a great pasta dish that's quick and easy to make. I even got the kids to eat some of the broccoli, which is always a plus. The only thing I would change add a red bell pepper for color and flavor. I've made it with and without the pepper and will definitely make it again with the pepper.

    Unique flavor

    Barbara Van Haren from ROCKFORD, MI

    I have made these for years. The original recipe, Mint Chocolate Snappers, from many years ago actually used mint chocolate chips (no longer available), melted. I now use about a half teaspoon of peppermint extract. This is a wonderful subtle combination of flavors with the mint and cinnamon.

    Long Standing Favorite

    Susan Ulrich from Shirley, ND

    I have been making these cookies for almost 20 years! Since I can no longer find Choco-Bake at my supermarket, I substitute cocoa powder mixed with oil (12 tablespoons cocoa powder & 4 tablespoon of vegetable oil). It works out wonderfully. This is one of those recipes that no one actually believes you made at home because they look so good. Delicious!

    A Delicious Crispy Cookie

    Sharon Hoard from ASHEVILLE, NC

    I put all the sugar,using brown, in the batter, then put a small scoop on the baking sheet. Do not overbake, they burn easily. They are a wonderful chocolate crispy cookie. I also used Bittersweet Baking chocolate in place of the Choco Bake, as our store did not have that ingredient. This is a keeper that I'll make often.
