williamgunn 1 year agoThe sugar and egg white is what gives it most of it's structure, so it gets drier when it's cool.

Kandydolz 2 years agoI thought the flavor a little strong, but that very well may have been due to the amount of chocolate chips I used. It was not quite as moist as I had been hoping.
