Hi, first congratulations on your work. Then, I have a question, is the 2 hour refrigeration strictly necessary? I do not know if I have that much time. I am making these with our kids and they do not know how to wait that long for cookies particularly when they involve chocolate.

Somehow after I added the dry ingredients (cocoa powder, flour...) it made the mixture turn brown and not a nice brown shade. Hopefully they taste good
