Our family has been making these little guys to add to holiday cookie baskets since 1987. They freeze well, so you can make them early. The recipe's from one of my favorite junior league cookbooks, "Creme de Colorado".

My friend Dione gave me this recipe.... and it rocked my world!!! These are so good & sooo addictive! I used 4 cups of powdered sugar and used 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips to dip. Great recipe!

I use to make these years ago but had lost my old recipe. I fixed this recipe for family and friends over the holidays. They were a bigger hit than my old recipe.
