    First, I should make it clear that I did not follow the recipe exactly. I was making this for just me (a chocoholic who is also trying to eat healthier) so I made a much smaller recipe. I found the chocolate was too thick even though I constantly stirred it so I added a few drops of milk to thin it just a bit. I also didn't bother to add the eyes. I enjoyed finding a different and sweet way to get my fiber quota but I'm not sure that young children would like this as well as Chinese noodle cookies made with chow mein noodles.
