      Made these cookies and they were surprisingly bad. They did not have enough sugar, vanilla and or probably not enough butter either since they were a bit dry. These cookies did however have to much unsweetened chocolate powder and would cut this down by 1/4 cup. Gag. This cookie tasted like a dried up truffle gone bad. I would suggest if making these to not use semi-sweet chocolate chips melted but instead melt some Hershey's Milk Choclate. The recipe itself is a good idea but a real chef needs to remake the actual ingredients. They taste bad.

      A wonderful Christmas cookie. I rolled mine in red/green/white jimmies before I "thumbprinted" them. Taste great, look pretty. Thank you for posting this one!
