My Mom has been baking these cookies for years. It's not Christmas without these on the cookie tray. But they're yummy any time of year.

I made this and thought it was great. (If you wanted to make it more "traditional Italian Chocolate Balls" to do that you would add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 teaspoon pepper). Then I frosted it with chocolate whiskey frosting :)
