"These cookies are very simple to make, no special ingredients called for. Instead of the chopped nuts I used powdered almonds which you can do by simply throwing nuts into the coffee grinder, helpful for picky eaters. I formed them into balls by using two teaspoons of the dough together and it just barely made it to 48 cookies. The first time I made the dough it came out nice and smooth, I would advise to keep mixing as the dough should come together as the butter melts-start out with softened butter though. But I decided I wanted extra so I made a half batch, that time it came out very powdery no matter how much I mixed. If this happens just add a few more tablespoons of butter and your dough is saved. These cookies turned out quite good, will make again."

"The kiss in the center just sinks to the bottom, some were left on the wrapper and even if it was in the cupcake it was very hard and not easy to eat when cooled down. Some other suggestion to put the kiss in the cupcake would be helpful."

"These cupcakes turned out very good, looked very nice too. My problems were with the frosting, adding the whipping cream just made the frosting runny and very hard to scoop up. Time in the refrigerator did fix this, but next time I would omit the whipping cream or maybe you were supposed to whip it before adding? Also I really dislike frosting recipes that use all butter it tastes like a stick of butter, the oreos got rid of that but before it did not taste good. To fix that should do either half shortening and butter or all shortening. I had extra cream which was piped on top, put the ganache over that then an oreo dipped in ganache. Turned out very pretty but was a bit heavy from the cream cheese."

"This recipe turned out pretty good except for the topper. I omitted the peanut butter and nuts and added a layer of chocolate frosting beneath the vanilla. Using a whole can of vanilla frosting was a bit much, next time I would use whipped. The true failure was the topping, it got stale after only a day and did not stay crunchy like it should have been. Also when making topping need way more chocolate than called for."

"These were tasty as well as fun to look at. I basically used the idea with my own ingredients- homemade meat sauce, olives and bell peppers, they turned out pretty nice. Tips-spray the pan well as well as put some sauce down before you put in the wrapper-easier to scoop out. I didn't cook them the full thirty minutes and they were fine, but when you take them out, you have to wait until they firm up so you can scoop them out. Only complaint, they were a little too crispy on the top edges, wish there was some way to get rid of that. They were very small, probably due to the wrappers which are the size of a small glass. Pot sticker wrappers can be found next to the tofu and other items, usually by the vegetables, in the picture though it looks like they used something else as it wraps around and has edges. This was a good idea."

Make sure you line the pan with wax paper, I didn't and the cake stuck and was burned on the bottom- check the cake before the time listed. The flavor at the end is nice, the cake tastes more like a sponge cake and the ice cream inside is very cold when eating. Also very hard to cut the cake, stuck to the fingers when holding it so finally just took a knife and pushed it down to make a slice. Looked like a colorful sushi roll according to a family member.

For me this cake was a little weird, I followed the instructions but it didn't rise very much so I was barely able to cut it in half. Also when making the batter, the ending result is much more like cookie dough than cake batter I thought it may have needed more water or something like that. Altogether it was much more like on hard cookie with cream between but that may have been what they were going for. Next time I would probably use cocoa powder instead of the chocolate for the color, also add more Oreo cookies to the batter.

I found these cookies a little dry. Tasted them without the topping and were very dry, with the topping they were better but still not the texture I was hoping for. Looking for a solution to make them more moist.
