  1. These look pretty easy to make. I love making cookies and treats at Christmas time, and I think we eat enough to make up for the whole year, lol. Maybe if I make a few more treats during the year we won't eat so many goodies at Christmas, and this looks like something I would enjoy making, thanks for the recipe!!

  2. OMGosh - I've made a list of new cookie recipes that I've found and want to make this year. I think that this one has moved right up to the top of the list.

  3. My mother loves chocolate covered cherries. I get her some every year. This year I am going to make these! Thanks! πŸ™‚
