These are simple and delicious cookies. Sure to satisfy that chocolate craving! I received this recipe from a friend of mine a long time ago, and it has been a family favorite ever since!

These needed something else to them -- maybe walnuts or pecans. After tasting the first batch I topped each cookie with a peppermint-flavored Hershey's kiss as soon as they came out of the oven. That helped a lot. I served these at a pot luck and had numerous people say they looked nice with the Hershey's kiss on top, but no one said they tasted good. There were lots of leftovers.
