This recipe is awesome! I tried to make these early last week, but I misread the recipe and used too much butter, so I couldn't make them into balls. But then I made these for my boyfriend this last weekend and they turned out perfect. I had to refridgerate the batter for a little while because pouring hot, melted chocolate into dry indgrediants, of course, left it sticky and warm. When properly cooled, the icing won't smear around and you can put them in a lunchbox or even a ziplock bag.
I made these cookie last night they were ok.
Ohmigosh! I was recently at a dessert party, and had something similar to these, and came looking on Allrecipes for a recipe for the cookie. Bingo! I found it. These are sooooooo good! I made the first batch as written, then made a second batch in the same bowl--didn't rinse it or anything--and made a second batch, only using mint extract in place of the almond, and vanilla in the glaze. This was because I had a real "mint tooth" going on. (Although I'm not sure if they are still Austrian ;) ) I also replaced the nuts with mini chocolate chips in the second batch. They are sooooo good, too! The glaze seems to stay prettiest if it stays warm. Mine got a bit grainy. Thanks for a keeper!
I wanted to find a new cookie that would be a hit and this is it! I doubled the original recipe and added a few mini-chocolate chips.
We just made this for my son's class project (had to make something Austrian since he studied Austria). Wow! Easy to make - I supervised my 12 year old and we followed the recipe exactly. Our dough was very dry and I was worried if we had done something wrong. They came out delicious, though! We'll make these again as most of the cookies are going in to his class.
I'll admit, I have not frosted these yet, but I have eaten two of them right out of the oven. VERY rich, almost too rich, and very reminiscent of brownies. I think brownies would have been easier. We'll see how my cookie exchange likes them with the frosting on. That might put them over the edge into 'too righ' for my taste, but a die-hard chocolate buff would really enjoy them.
great recipe..the chocolate glaze adds a delicious touch..just put waxed paper or paper towel under the cookies after you dip them so they wont drip everywhere!
I was excited to try this recipe (a fix for my chocolate craving!) after reading the reviews, but this recipes disappointed me. The texture was odd and I just didn't particularly care for the flavor. I ate a couple and tossed the rest...not worth the calories at all : ) Those who like a less sweet, darker chocolate taste may enjoy them, but I certainly won't be making them again!
