  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt 2 squares of chocolate with 1/3 cup of butter. Stir frequently until melted; remove from heat, and set aside to cool. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix sugar, egg, egg yolk, and almond extract until light and fluffy. Stir in the melted chocolate. Combine flour and walnuts, and stir into the batter until just combined. Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls, and place them 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. If the dough is too sticky, refrigerate for 30 minutes before forming balls.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes, or until firm to the touch. Transfer to wire racks immediately, and set aside to cool.
  4. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt 1 square of chocolate and 1 tablespoon butter together, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla and confectioners' sugar until well blended. Beat in the milk one tablespoon at a time until the glaze is of the desired consistency. Dip the tops of the cookies into the glaze, and allow to dry completely before storing in an airtight container.

We just made this for my son's class project (had to make something Austrian since he studied Austria). Wow! Easy to make - I supervised my 12 year old and we followed the recipe exactly. Our...

I'll admit, I have not frosted these yet, but I have eaten two of them right out of the oven. VERY rich, almost too rich, and very reminiscent of brownies. I think brownies would have been easie...

great recipe..the chocolate glaze adds a delicious touch..just put waxed paper or paper towel under the cookies after you dip them so they wont drip everywhere!

I was excited to try this recipe (a fix for my chocolate craving!) after reading the reviews, but this recipes disappointed me. The texture was odd and I just didn't particularly care for the f...

Ok, I made these into the tiny 3/4 inch balls the recipes calls for and baked them on parchment paper...which means they STAYED little tiny balls after they cooked. I'm sure had I not used parc...
