This recipe is one that I picked to try for our church's christmas cookie walk. I made one batch of the dough and baked only a couple to try before freezing the remaining dough. They mixed up easily enough, makes a very small amount as you can tell by the measurements. The cookie by itself is on the bland side but after the filling is added I'm sure it will be a tasty cookie. I ate the cookie before adding filling to make sure I liked it enough to add the extra expense of the chocolate and nuts/peppermints/etc. Very light chocolate flavor, soft but definitely needs the added flavor of filling and topping.

I'm making these treats right now actually...and I probably won't be attempting again. I am a very creative baker and these are much more trouble than they are worth. The only three I've dipped so far are still in the drying stage so I haven't even tasted them, but its pretty much a given, IF they dry, they will be delicious...my rating in on the ease of the directions only. I did not use the foil as suggested, unnecessary since my pan releases perfectly. The freezing process makes the stick wiggle so much inside the cavity were placed, they fall off the stick...so much for the fun of eating off the stick! I don't think I'll finish the task as recipe...think I'll cut into smaller bite size pcs. and dip completely...maybe even use candy coating instead of the chips...sets up so much faster, and the chocolate "crunch" is more candy-like.
