- Dip ends of cookies in melted chocolate. Roll ends in walnuts. Place on wax paper until set. Freeze up to 1 month, if desired. Enjoy!
Delicious! The cookie is not too sweet by itself, but the chocolate dipped portion is rich enough to perfectly balance the taste of the cookie. If you are a chocolate lover, this is the cookie for you! It is rich, you can't eat too many. Thanks for posting this one, Sharon.
