    This recipe is fantastic. We made these as bar cookies in a 9x11 and baked for 20 min. They were nice and gooey when warm and set up great once they cooled.  -  21 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are the best cookies! I looked all over for a recipe oatmeal cookies with cocoa, as I always have cocoa on hand, but not always chocolate chips. They are really moist and even without the chips, very chocolatey!  -  12 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've been looking for a variation on tired, old Tollhouse, but the man insists on chocolate chips! These are fantastic! Chewy and soft, even the next day. No hard cookies here! Very rich and chocolatey. The cinnamon complements the chocolate nicely, adding a unique flavor, and the cocoa powder makes them not just oatmeal cookies with chips in them. Double the recipe to make 72. Sounds like too many cookies, but who measures them out by the teaspoon?! Definitely glass of milk territory!  -  18 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
