    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched in center. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    In 2-quart saucepan, melt 2 ounces chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter over low heat, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and hot water until smooth. (If frosting is too thick, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time. If frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time.) Spread over cookies.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Unsweetened baking chocolate contains 50 to 58 percent cocoa butter. Bitter in flavor, it's used primarily in baking. You'll find it in the supermarket in a rectangular box containing packages of one-ounce squares or bars.
  • tip 2
    Frost cookies with a container of your favorite flavor of Betty Crocker® frosting.
  • tip 3
    Store cookies in a baking pan with waxed paper between layers of cookies.
