my girls both loved these frosted chocolate cookies. I've been making them for years. The original recipe came from an old Farm Journal magazine and my mom passed it on to me.

Wow fabulous, fabulous, fabulos! This is such a simple recipe, comes together in no time and tastes great. I being a chocoholic added in the mini chips but skipped the nut due to allergies. These not only taste great with the frosting but also without especially warm! Thanks for another keeper.

My two guys are chocoholics so I did add in the mini chocolate chips. I also used pecans in place of the walnuts. These are great chocolate cookies!! Slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside - perfect. Instead of chocolate frosting, I melted some white chocolate morsels. Poured it into a zip-lock bag and snipped off one corner. Then I squeezed the melted white chocolate onto the cooled cookies in a zig-zag shape forming a Christmas tree.
