Yummy to My Tummy: Soft & Chewy Chocolate Drops

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.

Great idea! I'll continue to check in to see those cute kiddos of yours and check out all the recipes that you are kind enough to share. I'm just now getting the itch to cook again on a more regular basis and Cy is 4 mo old!!!
