    Homemade chocolate cookies are a sweet treat by themselves, but a crown of mocha frosting takes them from kitchen counter to coffee table for company-best! Baking chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips and cocoa combine for a rich chocolate experience. The cookies are mixed in one large saucepan, keeping cleanup to a minimum.
