London Almond Chocolate Cookies

3rd batch of CNY cookies has launched!
Everyone in the family loves this cookies.....
Children like the CRuncy COokies, Hubby is the ALmond/ Nut's LOver, We are the CHocolate Fans...... LOL

Due to last year's highly demand, i record this recipe in my MUST-BAKED list for CNY cookies this year. I am glad that i did a smooth and silky chocolate coating. Hints?
1. Don't overheat when melting chocolate
2. If you are not fast enough to coat all the cookies before the melting chocolate turn hard. I suggest you to overheat 30seconds-1min and stir again for another smooth coating.

DON't Hesitate! Bake now!!
