These were very quick and easy to make. They are also very quick and easy to eat! They reminded me of pralines, but a bit richer. I might try adding a little cinnamon and vanilla next time. Not they needed any additions, but just to give them a different taste. Thanks for posting.

I made these as a snack for Christmas. We couldn't stop popping these things in our mouths. This is a great recipe.
