Chocolate Sugar Cookies

When I saw this recipe, I immediately knew that I had to make them. They were called "brownie chocolate cookies" and I expected them to be soft and chewie. I suspect that I rolled them too thin because they weren't even remotely close to anything brownie-like, but they were really good. Especially the next day when all the flavours melded together and they became intensely chocolatey.
