Frosted Double Chocolate Chip Drop Cookies

“This recipe came from my sister who is the best baker in my family. These cookies are the best if you like soft, doughy, sweet cookies. I have never had them with the nuts, but if you choose to include them, use only half of the chocolate chips (6oz). Having a big sweet tooth, I never understood why people would ever use UN-sweetened chocolate squares, so I tried it with semi-sweet and man were they too sweet with the frosting! I have also seen my sister use cocoa in lieu of choc. squares, but am not sure of the exact measurement. Note: I usually use 1-2 tubs of the pre-made regular vanilla frosting (not whipped), but I couldn't remember the size of the container..hence the two cups....”
