    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    This recipe is from the back of an old bag of "M & M's" Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bits. I am glad I saved it, because these are great cookies and the recipe is no longer available, even on their website. This recipe is one of thirty or so varieties that I make every Christmas and it is always a favorite. *Added 12/30/07: I don't add the M & M baking bits AFTER the dough is refrigerated. I never understood why that was necessary and since I stopped doing it I've noticed no difference. I couldn't find the M & M's this year, so used a 10 oz. bag of Hershey Kissables and they came out just as good.* --K

      I can't say exactly, they looked so good, I got started, and discovered that my almond flavor was DRY, so I used vanilla. Then I discovered my chocolate chips were butterscotch! However, they turned out just great, as Butterscotch, Coconut Snowballs!

      These were so delish! The only problem I had was finding the m&m baking bits so I used kissables as suggested. The little kisses faded in color when they were baked and so ther weren't as pretty as I would have liked. The taste was still amazing though. I will def make these again as they are a nice alternative to the usual cookie flavor but using something other than the kissables.
