These moist treats will have everyone reaching for more. Folks tell me they enjoy the cookies. In fact, the batches I make ahead for my family and store in the freezer seem to mysteriously disappear each year—even though the chocolate topping I put on before serving hasn't been added yet! —Judy Wilder, Mankato, Minnesota

made them for the first time they were a hit !!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2012

I was disappointed in the texture. Next time I would not chop the walnuts so fine as the chocolate chips seem overwhelming. I have not baked all of them yet and put some miniature marshmallows in the freezer and hope my chopper will chop them up a bit. Think a little white would add to the color--maybe a few chopped cherries too!

Not sure what happened. Followed recipe exactly and the result wasn't good. Sorry I wasted all those walnuts :0(

I used mini muffin pans and non-stick spray and they came out fine. Very good.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2012

These cookies are amazing!! I made them last year as part of my Christmas cookies and I had to make several additional batches! They were such a hit! I already have people asking me to bring them functions and it's only September! My only trouble was getting them out of the foil cups, so I used baking spray on mini muffin pans and made them without the foil cups.
