These little mounds would go great on a Christmas cookie tray or at any time of the year for a gift. Everyone loves kitchen gifts and who could turn down candy?? The size of the batch will depend on how large you make them.

I have a cookbook saved with some of Amy's best recipes. This certainly is at the top of the list. Flavor great, goes together quickly and produces great results. Try this for a quick snack. To Amy's family: Thinking of you today. KCShell
