On their own, without any frosting, these cookies are not great. With very little flavor, they are simply a carrier for the frosting. I had some butterscotch frosting to use up, so topped them with that instead of the chocolate. They do have a nice soft texture and with frosting on top, were much improved.

This recipe is great! My only complaint about it is the aftertaste the frosting leaves, but that is really not a big deal. It was a pretty easy recipe, it could use maybe a little bit more chocolate in the cookie (i was on a major chocolate jones when i made these.) The recipe for the frosting makes MORE than enough. I cut the powdered sugar in half and added a little bit more milk. This cookie is soft and yummy. It's almost like a cake, but still a cookie. I really liked how this recipe didn't use a lot of butter. I will most definetly make these cookies again. :)

Great Cookie. I was looking for a chocolate drop cookie w/ chocolate icing and I wasn't disappointed. So easy to make and they turned out soft and moist just like it claimed. I made them for some preschoolers and they loved them. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
