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.

GREAT recipe - the next best thing to a chocolate IV-drip. Kids ate them like potato chips, grown-ups begged for the recipe. A few tips: - Chill time is critical. Dough needs to be cold. I refrigerate for at least four hours, or overnight. - Rolling in powdered sugar doesn’t work well – it gets all globbed up. Instead, when the dough balls are on the cookie sheet, I dust the tops generously (I put the powdered sugar in a small strainer). When the cookies come out of the oven, I give them another very light dusting. - 12 minutes is about right. They’ll look a bit under-done, but they’ll remain chewy.

These are great little cookies. I tried another similar recipe but liked this one much better. These cookies were much fudgier, and the chocolate chips give them an extra richness. They are really pretty too. I followed the recipe exactly, and baked the cookies for 10 minutes.
