    Think these would come out well if I subbed the chocolate with cocoa powder? I’m thinking in terms of adding a bit of water instead of adding the extra fat recommended in typical cocoa sub formulas?

      Hello Gwen, we have never tested this recipe with cocoa powder. I guess that would work but keep in mind that cocoa powder doesn’t contain sugar. -Marie from Crosby’s Kitchen
