      I would give these 3 stars out of five. They were easy to make and tasted quite good out of the oven. They mimicked a shortbread texture, and the warm melted chocolate was great. However, I made them for a party that was later that evening and they didn’t “age” well. The melted chocolate hardened back up and the cookie itself became doughy and ended up tasting more like coconut oil than chocolate. Not sure if you could switch the oil for butter and alleviate that problem. So, I would recommend these if you want to make a quick batch of cookies and serve them immediately, but don’t plan on keeping them for any length of time.
