    What 2 Others have said

    • Made these and oh my goodness! They were delicious! I would love to make plain ones though - i.e. with no chocolate in the mix but live in Denver and wonder if that will affect the texture. It's high altitude here (1 mile high) and that affects some of my baking - some biscuits go splat when I bake them and I'm just wondering if the melted chocolate in the mix helped keep their texture and shape. Any suggestions?
