Makes about 52

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 pound butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
2/3 cup finely chopped nuts
2 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixture until fluffy. Add vanilla and mix well. Gradually add flour, cinnamon and nuts. Stir in 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips. Shape into 1" balls and place 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool. Place 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips in a sealed plastic bag and microwave until melted; about 30 seconds. Snip off a small corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate on top of cold cookies. Chill for 5 minutes or until chocolate is set. Store at room temperature.

Would make this again.
These were so yummy! Yes, they're dry, as the other reviews say, but they're supposed to be! We left out the cinnamon and nuts and accidentally added an extra 1/3 cup of chocolate chips, and I highly recommend that. We had fun rolling some of them in crushed candy canes and sugar. :) Get creative! 5 stars

Would make this again.
I was too dry for my taste. Easy to make, but to dry and it needed to be a little sweeter. Not bad though. 3 stars

Would make this again.
This was one of the most simplified and tasty recipes that I have ever made. The ingredients are wholesome (which means fattening) and thier as fun to make as they are tasty. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I make them every year my family and friends love them. They are easy and wonderful to eat. Couldn't find my recipe this year to make them, so glad you had it posted. Found my recipe in a magazine years ago. Happy holidays!
