This recipe is great! My only complaint about it is the aftertaste the frosting leaves but that is really not a big deal. It was a pretty easy recipe it could use maybe a little bit more chocolate in the cookie (i was on a major chocolate jones when i made these.) The recipe for the frosting makes MORE than enough. I cut the powdered sugar in half and added a little bit more milk. This cookie is soft and yummy. It's almost like a cake but still a cookie. I really liked how this recipe didn't use a lot of butter. I will most definetly make these cookies again.:) Read More

On their own without any frosting these cookies are not great. With very little flavor they are simply a carrier for the frosting. I had some butterscotch frosting to use up so topped them with that instead of the chocolate. They do have a nice soft texture and with frosting on top were much improved. Read More

When these cookies came out of the oven I was struck by how soft they were to the touch. These cookies were quite delicious and very easy to make! Read More

Great Cookie. I was looking for a chocolate drop cookie w/ chocolate icing and I wasn't disappointed. So easy to make and they turned out soft and moist just like it claimed. I made them for some preschoolers and they loved them. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Read More

Following the directions the mix looked more like brownie batter than drop cookie. I tweaked it to get a better "drop" consistency. Read More

These were excellent- not too chocolatey but still sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. They were -very- crumbly unpon taking them out of the oven and trying to frost them was near impossible so i waited for about an hour before i frosted them. The best part was that they were still soft after saving them for a few days! Read More

This was a very easy to make cookie. I wanted something to make for Christmas baking. I decided I wanted chocolate but not a chocolate chip cookie. I love them but wanted an entirely chocolate cookie. This is exactly what I was looking for. They are still super soft a day later. It is a cake like cookie for sure. I love it though. The frosting is sweet and satisfies my sweet tooth perfectly. I have a request from my husband to make some for him to take to work for his friends.:) Read More

Super easy recipe. I think next time I'll add a couple tbsp of sugar to sweeten them up. Otherwise great base recipe. Read More
