Mocha Nut Butterballs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by momaphet

We love our coffee in Seattle and not just to drink! These are a quick, rich little treat, similar to Mexican or Russian Wedding Cookies; they go perfectly with a hot cup of coffee or tea.

These marvelous cookies were included on a tray of goodies intended for Thanksgiving dessert. I'm inclined to say that they were a real hit as there were 4 on the tray after dinner. My 3 guys pretty much cleaned it up before dinner. I did manage to get 2 of them and the next time I make these yummy bites I'm stashing most of them in my desk! :D
