Stir in:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Shape into balls and place on cookie sheet. Mark the tops with a fork.

Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes or until light brown on the edges.

Melt and drizzle on top of the cookies:

Refrigerate a bit to let the chocolate harden, then enjoy!
