Frosted Double Chocolate Chip Drop Cookies

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Jemmadky

This recipe came from my sister who is the best baker in my family. These cookies are the best if you like soft, doughy, sweet cookies. I have never had them with the nuts, but if you choose to include them, use only half of the chocolate chips (6oz). Having a big sweet tooth, I never understood why people would ever use UN-sweetened chocolate squares, so I tried it with semi-sweet and man were they too sweet with the frosting! I have also seen my sister use cocoa in lieu of choc. squares, but am not sure of the exact measurement. Note: I usually use 1-2 tubs of the pre-made regular vanilla frosting (not whipped), but I couldn't remember the size of the container..hence the two cups....
