69 carb. Makes 36 cookies @ 1.5 carbs. (counts do NOT include the chocolate bars)
*I didn't have the chocolate bars so I mixed the following:
1 1/2 T butter
3 T splenda
4 1/2 T unsweetened cocoa

Melt butter in microwave in 6" square plastic container. Stir in splenda and cocoa and put in freezer untill firm. Pop chocolate out of container and cut up. Nutrition counts using "homemade chips": 36 cookies @ 1.7 carbs
These do not spread and are like little puffy muffins - texture is more cake-like than cookies, but they taste great. Best the first day, a little dry the second. They are not too sweet and I may use 1 cup splenda, 1/2 cup sweet & low next time.
