Festive chocolate drops
These are soooo delicious! I had a problem making the frosting as neat as in the picture, but the cookie tasted yummy in spite of my lack of artistic abilities. I renamed the recipe for myself calling it "Snow on the Mountains!"
My daughter won her Brownie Girl Scout troop's baking contest with this recipe. These cookies are delicious and have a wonderful cake-like texture.
delicious & simple
I just made this cookie this weekend and it was so quick and easy. If you love chocolate you won't be disappointed. Your family will be asking you to make more!!!
Was A BIG Hit !!!!
Everybody at the party loved these cookies. I iced mine first then put the chocolate in the middle. They was really cute and very tastey. I'll be making more as the Holiday season goes on.
