    Chocolatl's Note:

    These are my attempt to make a chocolate version of Mexican Wedding Cake cookies. (My son named them.) In my experiments I felt that using half butter and half margarine made for the best texture, but you can of course use all butter if you wish.

      Not as dry as I had thought, I did use 5 tablespoons water, gradually adding 1 tablespoon as I was mixing, and in step 1 I added an extra 1/2 tablespoon of butter, it seemed to be more consistent. All gobbled up, and made for nice treat. Made for PRMR Tag.

      Apologies... My Cocoa Bombs came out dry, and I was not able to figure out how to save them. I tried increasing the cooking time, but that did not solve my problem. If you can figure where I went wrong, I would be happy to try this recipe again. This is up my alley (wedding cookies). Made for Photo Tag.
