These are a delicious cake like cookie, with a wonderful Mocha frosting, which I have used for many different desserts.

This recipe comes from a Taste of Home magazine of mine. I have made these cookies more times than I can remember. Always loved by family and friends.

I changed the recipe just a bit to my liking.

How to Make Chocolate Drops

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla.. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in walnuts.
  2. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool on pans for 1 minute before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
