Chewy Chocolate Drop Cookies

This is an easy cookie that I have made for many years and it is great with or without icing. Though I do prefer it with chocolate icing! This is the recipe I like to use but you could substitute your favorite frosting recipe.

In this posting, I would like to share a few more of our Victorian theme Christmas ornaments. I have to admit this is my favorite theme for our Christmas tree. I love all the ornaments and it is such a joy to decorate this tree. The Victorian age is a time period I enjoy studying and watching movies based upon how people lived back then.

½ teaspoon Baking Soda
½ teaspoon Salt

2 oz. Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
2 tablespoons Butter
2 cups Powdered Sugar

On cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded tablespoonful’s about 2 inches apart.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched in center. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

In 2-quart saucepan or microwave, melt 2 ounces chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter over low heat, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and hot water until smooth. (If frosting is too thick, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time. If frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time.) Spread over cookies, decorate with sprinkles if desired and enjoy!

    1. Thank you! I am going to make figgy pudding this weekend. If it comes out well I will post. I believe it is a recipe made in the Victorian times – but I need to research it more.

    1. Thanks so much! I used the chocolate squares in this recipe but my mother uses the cocoa powder and that is also really good. Plus you can add nuts to the cookies or really anything! It is a great base cookie.

    1. Thank you – I do hope you enjoy them! For the icing you can also use cocoa powder instead of the chocolate squares. Let me know if you have a chance to make them. They pair nicely with a cold glass of milk! Bernice 🙂
