Fudgy No-bake Drop Cookies

If you need a quick chocolate fix, here's a great recipe that stirs up in no time.  You dump most of the ingredients in a bowl, microwave for three minutes, add the last couple ingredients, then plop onto a greased cookie sheet and pop in the freezer for 20 minutes.
Voila.  Done.
You may want to use oven mitts as you take the bowl out of the microwave.  And next time I'll grease my cookie sheet a little better, or even use parchment paper, so the tasty little morsels will slide off the pan more easily.
Also, I cut this recipe in half to get the amount shown here. 
Because we all know that if cookies are just sitting on the counter, they are asking for it. 
Go visit Sandra at Keeping it Simple to get the recipe.
Now I have a question for you.  On a completely unrelated chocolate note,
How the heck do you get chocolate curls, not chocolate dust?  Any secrets?

I've never actually tried to do curls before, but I think the "pros" use a knife, rather than a peeler. Or maybe you could try softening the chocolate a bit?

I haven't had huge success, but I melt the chocolate into a thin slab (with the microwave) and let it cool almost completely. When it's still a little warm, I use a vegetable peeler to curl it up. It worked OK, but there might be a better way. Those cookies look tasty too!

Wow what easy cookies, well here is my bit of wisdom on making chocolate curls. First use a Hershey chocolate bar (no almonds) at room temperature. When you use your carrot peeler, pull it toward you very slow and over say the pie or cake your are working on that way it drops and looks pretty. I have tried doing curls on wax paper but it breaks when putting on the cake or pie. Your hands will get a bit messy so pop in in the fridge for a minute but don't let it get to cold.
But using a Hershey bar works better than a baking chocolate.I have used a German Chocolate bar in a pinch and it works okay.

I hope it works for you, once I learned making curls with Hershey I just sat and made curls because it is such fun. :)

These looks interesting!!! and yummy!!! The only way that I have ever been able to get chocolate curls..is to use a vegetable peeler...but use the warmth of your hands to warm the chocolate slightly and then slice the side of your bar. I hope this makes sense. :)

Fo chocolate curls, try using the big slice side of your box grater (if you have one). Or, get a microplane. I couldn't function in the kitchen without one.
