This is not a cookie---not candy. Somewhere in between. But I'll bet you can't eat just one!

These are wonderful!! Very easy to make. I made a batch and they went so fast, my 12 year old son made another batch. We just couldn't stop eating them! This is a wonderful PMS helper.
Thanks for the lovely recipe. I baked these for 15 minutes after forming into round balls. Then, let them remain in the oven for 2.5 hours, after which, I let them cool completely and then stored them in airtight containers and sent some back home:) Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I was able to make 36 of these and my family loved them as much as I did!
My husband made a comment about being hungry for something chocolate, so I secretly went online and looked up a recipe that had cocoa powder in it (since I had nothing else chocolate in the house). I found this recipe and within less than 10 minutes I handed him a plateful of the cocoa dreams. At first he looked confused that I had made something so quick without him knowing, then he was delighted when he tasted them! He ate quite a few right away and brought the rest to work where everyone else really enjoyed them!! Thanks for this great recipe- it's quick and yummy...a great combination!!
