This recipe works well with practically any variety of honey -- orange blossom, acacia, even strong-flavored buckwheat. If desired, you can stir in 1/2 cup chopped toasted nuts (almonds, walnuts, or pecans) with the chocolate.

These were delicious and incredibly fast and easy to make. I just used chocolate chips but I could also see using white chocolate chips and dried cranberries as an alternative. I would definitely be making these again. Another great thing about them is that that cut so nicely, even a room temp. Would be good for the holidays as well or a cookie swap.

I agree with previous post; these were very easy and tasty. The honey flavor does come through but is not overpowering. I could also taste the coarse salt, so fans of salted caramel should love these. I added pecans to mine- yum!

These came out great! Followed recipe exactly and they came out moist and tasty. Sometimes recipes with honey can hide the flavor but these have a great taste that lets the honey shine through.
