Chocolate Drop Cookies


We love this recipe!  I think it was my Nana’s originally but I’m not sure about that.  I think my family has made these for every occasion I can remember.  At holiday times, we sprinkle colored sugars or other decorations over the top.

This cookie recipe is already doubled, the frosting is not. You may want to double the frosting.   If you want fewer cookies, just halve the recipe.

These cookies also freeze well even when frosted.

1 cup butter, melted
4 squares chocolate, melted
2 cups brown sugar, packed
