  8. then add the cocoa mix and stir until well mixed
  9. line two baking sheets with silpat or parchment paper
  10. drop the dough by TBSP onto the lined baking sheets, making about 24 cookies
  11. bake each sheet 7-8 minutes or until just starting to set, don’t over bake or burn them
  12. let them cool on the sheets for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack
  13. keep your baking sheets to place the iced cookies back on so they can be put some where to let the icing set up
  14. when the cookies are cool make the icing, it does set up so don’t make it before hand
  15. to make the icing: whisk the the butter, cocoa powder and milk together over medium heat until melted and mixed together
  16. remove from the heat and add the powdered sugar stirring to combine
  17. gently take each cookie and dip the top in the icing and then place it back on the baking sheet to set up
  18. once they’ve set up gently lift them off the baking sheet and place on a platter or plate
  19. there will be plenty of icing left on the sheet and it makes a tasty treat to pick at, don’t waste it
  20. they can be eaten right away but if you want the icing to harden up give them at least 3-4 hours
  21. store them lightly covered but not airtight because the icing will get gummy
