These are very good. My grandmother used to make them this way at Christmas, and we could never get enough. She would cover hers with different types of chocolate, and coatings (butterscotch, white chocolate, etc.) and add different fillings in some,( coconut, different nuts, peanut butter) But the bourbon ones with the hazlenut was my favorite.
