Recipe by bayou-mimi

I found this in an old Ocean Spray cookbook, and have been making them for Thanksgiving,holiday parties and adding to my Christmas gift baskets for a few years. I love the combination of flavors. The amount really depnds on how large you make them..I usually get around 25-30

These taste delicious! But I couldn't get the ganache to firm up enough at room temperature... so they might not be stable enough to give as gifts...
