these cookies were quite tasty, I had a holiday party for work and i had to bring something i used hershey bliss raspberry crem filled chocolate and they were an instant hit i made three batches and I didnt bring home a single cookie. also i left off the glaze they were perect with out it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were very tasty, however I found a different type of raspberry chocolate to use. As someone else said, these DO NOT spread, so if you leave them in ball-shape what you get will be one round little cookie. I really liked the icing, however, it made too much to cover all the cookies. Lastly, I think you could probably leave out the enormous amount of cocoa powder... they turned out a lot browner than the image. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried these some time last year and loved the cookies, then was no longer able to find the Hershey's pieces. After going on the Hershey website and then actually speaking to someone, I found out that they had been discontinued in 2008 sometime. The company said that if enough people were to contact them, there might be a chance to have them "reinstated". (They also made a great chunk with creamy mint center. I was upset to see Paula making them on a recent show, as I can imagine that someone "new" may want to try the recipe and be as frustrated as I was. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I did find the chocolate. I used the Ghiradelli brand, it was raspberry filled, and i chopped it up and added a little more chocolate chips as was suggested. These did not spread so i lightly pressed down before baking. Great cookie everyone loved it and wanted cookie recipe. will be adding to my christmas cookie list next year. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious! I followed advice from previous reviewer who suggested making alterations as follows: Did not use raspberry filled chocolates as I couldn't find. I used 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips instead. All other ingredients stayed the same. Then, before baking, I made a thumb print (spray your thumb with Pam first!) in the cookie. Add 1/2 tsp seedless raspberry jam. We did NOT top with glaze as it is perfectly sweet! As it is Christmas time, my daughter added different candy sprinkles (in red, white, & green) to add color after cookies cooled a couple of minutes. She also sprinkled some with powdered sugar lightly. Very pretty! And very tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just got done making these and they turned out AWESOME!! I put 3 T of raspberry preserves in the butter/sugar mix, added dark chocolate pieces and some chopped walnuts. I also used baking soda instead of powder. They turned out super and the glaze made the cookie! (I used about a Tablespoon of milk.) These will be made often! item not reviewed by moderator and published
