In place of the dried apples I use craisens/dried cranberries. The combo of chocolate and tart cranberries is wonderful!

I did not think that the combination of apples in this recipe would be good,but guess what! It is a delicious recipe and everyone should try for themselves.

The addition of the dried apple gave these easy to make cookies an interesting flavor. Thanks for this quick and easy recipe. I tried its ability to withstand mailing by sending some to my college student across country. Now I will send them to my friend in the service. Thanks!

This is a great recipe for shipping and just taking to friends and families parties, or to work. I make these for all parties and everyone wants these instead of cakes.

I was so impressed to find a choice of recipes that can be sent to our service men and women. My kids and I bake bar type treats for our local firehouse and now we will use these recipes for the firemen and we will include them in our next care package overseas.

I love the moistness of the cookie. It is like a brownie cookie, only better. My children love to make them because they are so easy to do. Thanks for sharing this recipe with all.

I baked several batches to send to my husband when he was in Iraq last year. Everyone loved them. I used miniature chocolate chips and dried apple slices. I wrapped each cookie in plastic wrap so they would wouldn't go stale en route to Iraq.

My son-in-law served 2005 in Iraq. I sent him a care package once a month, always with Nestle Choc chip cookies or bars. Now he is back there again, and wants to know how soon I can send his first of many care packages, of course with homemade goodies. Thank you so much for doing the research to make it easier to send goodies to our military. They deserve any "perks" we can send them. God Bless America and all our military.

Decadent and rich, this moist chocolate Buckeye Cake, layered with a creamy peanut butter filling and chocolate ganache topping is sure to delight friends and family. Elegant in appearance but easy to make, Krista Linegar of Willits, CA created this Grand Prize Winning cake because it reminded her of her Grandma’s Buckeye candies.
The perfect dessert for a sunny day. Fresh strawberries are kept shiny with a fruit-sweetened glaze.
Help someone make their own memories with this thoughtful gift.
