PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

MICROWAVE 3/4 cup morsels in a small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Cool to room temperature. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

BEAT butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in melted chocolate and egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 3/4 cup morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 8 to 9 minutes or until edges are set but centers are still slightly soft. Cool on baking sheets for 3 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Thinly frost centers of cookies with chocolate frosting.

FOR CHOCOLATE FROSTING:
MICROWAVE
remaining 1/2 cup morsels and butter in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH power for 30 seconds; stir until smooth. Microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Add powdered suar and milk; stir until smooth.

AMAZING!!!

These cookies are soooo good. I made them for an open house at my school last night and they were a hit. They were the first things to go and so many people were raving on about them.

Death by chocolate - SO good!

These are the BEST cookies and they're so easy! I like to add a few drops of mint or raspberry extract to the icing sometimes and it makes a completely different (but equally good!) tasting cookie!

Best Cookie Ever!

I have been making this cookie for several years now and they are always gone the same day. I substitute milk chocolate chips instead of the semi-sweet. Everyone that tries them loves them and my twins can't get enough!
