My son suddenly decided one day that he didn't like drinking hot cocoa. I had some mix leftover, so these are what I made. I used salted butter; if you use unsalted you may want to add 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Made these the other day for our mobile home park's refreshments get-together (actually their coffee hour, but since I don't drink the stuff . . .)! I thought they were great, my other half thought them OK, & our park neighbors devoured the rest of them, so there you go ~ 5 stars! [Made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #37]
