READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Wendy

These little gems are always the hit wherever I bring them. They are bursting with almond flavor and are wonderful dunked in coffee. They freeze beautifully in an airtight container.

Yummy! but a bit bland. Good texture otherwise. Could have maybe done with more chocolate chips or none at all.
