Bake in the preheated oven for 8-9 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • While the cookies are cooling make the chocolate frosting
  • In a bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments until fully melted then set aside to cool down to room temp.
  • In a stand mixer using a paddle attachment cream the butter, sifted powdered sugar and cocoa powder on medium speed for 3 minutes, scraping the side from time to time.
  • Add in the melted chocolate and mix on high speed, scraping down the sides from time to time. After 2-3 minutes the frosting will be smooth, and fluffy. Place the frosting in a piping bag with a Wilton 2D rosette tip, and pipe the chocolate frosting on the cooled down cookies and enjoy!
