Satiny Chocolate Glaze
YUM! This is a super easy, rich chocolate topper that is not a full on creamy frosting, but definitely not a thin seeps-into-your-baked-good liquid, either. I took the advice of my other reviewers and just melted the chips, butter and syrup together in the microwave in intervals, stirring in between, until everything was melted, then added the extract. The glaze doesn't really ever "harden"-it definitely achieves a firmer consistency when cooled, but it's still quite soft long after cooling. But, it's not a liquid, either-it's won't absorb into your baked good. It's somewhere between a syrup and an actual frosting and an excellent choice for a bundt cake, doughnuts, or possibly even piping on a traditional cake. It's absolutely delicious as well!

Too Much Chocolate Cake
Well, I may be in the minority here, but I wasn't impressed. I made this recipe twice, following the directions exactly each time and both times the cake, while not bad, tasted like a cake mix cake. I even tried different brands of cake mix and pudding mix-no change. Neither cake tasted especially rich, moist or chocolately. They were just ok-not bad tasting and adding chocolate chips to anything always helps. But I expected something much richer given the name. I will, however, fully vouch for the Satiny Chocolate Glaze from this site, which I used to top both cakes. Definitely not a traditional frosting, so don't expect something creamy, but a perfectly smooth, rich chocolate topping that is somewhere between a syrup and a full on frosting.

Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies
I, too, have only had very crisp, small cookies by Famous Amos and personally don't care for them much, so if this recipe differs from the original-with that being the original-good! These produced a somewhat crumbly, but definitely moist, soft cookie. In no way were they cakey and I struggle to know how anyone could manage that outcome. They were sweet and maybe could've used a bit more vanilla, but all in all a good, soft cookie.
