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.

Review This Recipe
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!
