    Deantini's Note:

    These cookies are our very favorite Christmas cookies. My husband has been making these with our kids since the oldest was just 1 1/2 years. They are amazing - chocolaty, fudgy and moist. A true winning combination. The dough needs to be refrigerated for 2 hours which is not included in the prep time. Cookies can be frozen for about a month and will last in airtight container for about a week (although we never actually have been able to test this time because the cookes are gone in no time).

      Wonderful and decadent! Very simple to make, as well. For fear of burning the chocolate (and also because I don't get to use it much), I pulled out my double boiler and used it to melt the butter and chocolate; it did it's usual fantastic job. I was pressed for time, so I put the dough in the freezer for 30 minutes, which did the trick! I used my cookie scoop (or should I say DH did), which I think was tbsp size, and then rolled the scoops into perfect balls. Which he then dubbed "reindeer poops" (nevermind, he's gearing up for spending the rest of the day with the nephews who are in their late teens, and it'll be reindeer poop and the like for the rest of the day for me!) I used parchment paper on the cookie sheets, and followed the recipe from there. They're so lovely, Deantini, and such a treat - no matter what you call them! Thanks for posting! :o) Made for PRMR Tag.
