I was inspired to make these cookies last year when we stopped for a snack while Christmas shopping. I changed a few things when I got home, and my Fudge Puddles became a favorite with my husband's family. —Kimarie Maassen, Avoca, Iowa
Chocolate lovers will get a double dose with this tender cake-like cookie and its chocolate mint middle. The cookies are especially popular served alongside a big scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream! —Renee Schwebach, Dumont, Minnesota
My daughter works at a summer camp, so I send treats. Instead of a cookie jar we use a coffee can and call it the Wrangler Feeding Trough. Everyone asks for this cookie. —Sue Klemm, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
Peanut butter and chocolate are a perfect combination. My cookie recipe can be changed to suit your sweet tooth. Try adding almond or mint extract. These cookies make a fun garnish for ice cream, too.—Beth Brown, Naples, Florida
"This combination of buttery shortbread and sweet chocolate is wonderful," promises Valarie Wheeler of DeWitt, Michigan. "Whenever I make it, there are nothing but crumbs left," she adds. Be sure to cut these into small squares because they're very rich.
Chocolate lovers won't be able to eat just one of these chewy treats from our Test Kitchen ovens. The delectable fudge drops are loaded with chocolate flavor and attractively topped with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
