These are cookies shaped in a small log and dipped in chocolate then nuts on both ends..they are SO easy to make and absolutely OUT OF THIS WORLD! You can just dip one end of the cookie in chocolate and nuts if desired, you will only need 1 cup of chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon shortening for only one side. If you are using salted butter, then omit the pinch of salt. These are a must for your holiday baking tray, you will love these, I promise! Cooking time is only estimated depending on the size of logs.
