“Got this recipe from Lickety Split Cookbook by Zonya Fuco. SO EASY, SO YUMMY, and only 20 calories EACH. They are molten little centers in a slightly crunchy shell that are VERY sweet, so they satisfy immediately with just one or two. I just made a batch for Christmas gifts and will now make a second (and maybe a third!) batch for us at home!!! Just be aware that they are VERY fragile when removing from waxed paper. (Those are the ones I sampled! LOL!!!) They also can be frozen for those "chocolate craving" moments!”
