I've been trying to find a recipe that is at least half as good as Big Island Candy's version. I'm posting this here to try out soon!

Delicious! I baked them at 325 degrees for 15 minutes and they were perfect. I also dipped some in melted white chocolate and they were oh so yummy. Great to give as gifts. They are so easy, and much better than store-bought.
