Hatch Chile Chocolate Drops with a Hatch Chile Glaze

This is an original recipe created for two cooking and baking competitions that I enter every year. I've been a finalist several times in both competitions.
An original recipe .
I was a finalist in the Cookie contest with another  recipe that I created.
I've simply created a totally different cookie here.
I describe it as the consistency of fudge, maybe a truffle. It has become one of my favorite cookies
and I definitely consider this one to be a "Best of the Best" recipe.
I hope you take the time to make them.
