My mom made these cookies years ago. They are good with or without the frosting. Sorry, the recipe didn't say how long they cook (so I guessed on the prep and cook time), or how much powdered sugar to use, and I haven't made these in awhile so I don't remember. I'm also not sure about how many dozen this makes, I just guessed.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cookie: Cream sugar and margarine.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla, stir.
  3. Stir in flour, cocoa and salt.
  4. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Drop onto hot waffle iron.
  6. Bake like waffles.
  7. Frost when cool.
  8. Frosting: Put ingredients, except powdered sugar in a medium saucepan.
  9. Boil, add powdered sugar until it gets to desired thickness.
  10. Cool slightly, frost cooled cookies.

Was looking for a recipe for these after constant badgering from husband. Simple, soft and extremely easy to make. Powdered sugar ended up being about 1 lb or half a reg bag to make a thick and spreadable frosting that compliments these cookies well. Super recipe to try if cooking with kids too due to ease and lack of mess. Husband gave four stars only because they were not exactly like the ones he grew up with. I gave five stars because I think they are great if not even better.

These were good -- though I used canned frosting instead of the frosting listed here (wanted a white/vanilla frosting with them). Very different, thanks for sharing!
