I realize that the main reason most of you probably read my blog is to see my super cute kids. However, I would also like to start posting a few non-kid-related things, too! In that spirit, be looking for my "Yummy to My Tummy" posts to pop up occasionally with tasty recipes I've found. Today's edition was a major hit with my small group a few weeks ago, courtesy of the back of the Baker's brand chocolate box. Enjoy!
Soft & Chewy Chocolate Drops
4 squares unsweetened baking chocolate 3 eggs
3/4 C butter 1 tsp vanilla
2 C sugar 2 1/2 C flour
1 tub (8 oz) frozen cool whip
6 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
Microwave unsweetened chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on high for 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar; mix well. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart, on greased baking sheets. Bake 8 minutes or just until set. (Do not overbake.) Let stand on baking sheet 1 minute; transfer to wire racks. Cool completely.
Place frozen whipped topping and semi-sweet chocolate in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is shiny and smooth, stirring after 1 minute. Let stand 15 minutes to thicken. Spread over cookies. Let stand until glaze is set. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
