Got a better recipe for these chocolate pretzels?

Martha Stewart has a recipe for chocolate pretzels. Not chocolate as in the confection, but like a deep, rich chocolate cookie shaped into a pretzel. I was thinking that dusted with sea salt, they'd make an excellent holiday present.

Unfortunately the reviews of the recipe are terrible....tastes like flour....not much flavor...coloring not good. I'm only a holiday baker. I don't have the skills to improve upon it. Anyone have any thoughts? Can I simply take any chocolate cookie recipe and shape it like this?

Thanks for your help...the link is below.
