Good idea. But I once had a recipe, which said , to gently press the chocolate into indentation while cookies are hot. And I have one where it says to place a marshmallow in the indentation and bake a 1 to 2 minutes longer. But I'll try this one, soon as I have a printer. But i think it might be too time consuming to make these cookies, some place, other than my own kitchen, unless I'm alone.
