These are good anytime for a chocolate lover. I make these ahead of time, place in the freezer and then do the chocolate coating as I need them.

I can't believe these are only rated at 2 1/2 stars. These cookies are different and delicious. My friend and i would make these when we were having a bad day and then give most of them away so we wouldn't eat them all. Everyone loves them. The chocolate topping stays soft and gooey all the time because of the shortening. AMAZING! Read More

Very moist cookie. Use Rolled oats. I used quick oats and could not roll them but still was a great cookie. Also used almond bark and drizzled on top. Read More
