Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination. Cooking time is cooling time.
These are so good, my husband literally inhales them. He gets a tin of them for Christmas each year and they go fast! Just a note: This is for peanut butter lovers and those who like very sweet stuff. I can only handle a couple of these :) (and normally I can handle pretty sweet desserts, but usu. recipes with regular chocolate.)
I chose these cookies for a cookie exchange I was in this past Christmas.
**They were a huge hit**
I had a few recipes for them, but I hadn't ever used them & I was afraid that they wouldn't live up to what I remembered as a child. Mostly because most of the Mexican wedding cookies I have tasted from others were too salty.
So I figured out the ingredients / measurements that worked best for me.
My ex-husband LOVED this simple chocolate sauce on cake rather than icing. He would smoosh/crumble up the cake, then pour this over the top making the cake into a chocolate mush. Can also be used over biscuits as a chocolate gravy.
