I made these for the annual cookie exchange and they were a huge success. I couldn't find jingles, so I substituted the Xmas swirls and added some cinnamon. I also doubled the recipe.

Wow

I MADE A TRAY OF DIFFERENT COOOKIES AND CANDIES. I WANTED SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I FOUND THE RECIPE SEARCHING TRHOUGH THE WEB. OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS SO EASY TO MAKE. BUT WHAT IM MOSTLY IMPRESSED ABOUT WAS HOW EASY IT WAS TO HANDLE THE COOKIE DOUGH TO ROLL INTO BALLS, AND IT TOOK NO TIME TO BAKE. NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT PART. AFTER THE COOKIES COOL YOU HAVE A SLIGHT CHRUNCH AND OH THE SOFT CHOCOLATE IN THE MIDDLE YUMMY. THANK YOU WHO EVER HAD THIS IDEA

I made this cookie recipe as part of my holiday gift giving, but my own family was so thrilled with them, I have to make a second batch! I did have to add an additional 10 jingles to the recipe, but still had a handful left in the bag when I finished.

What a Hit!

I made these cookies for my family on a recent get-together. What started out as a friendly board game turned into a cookie fiesta. These cookies were so good that after they had all been eaten, several of us opted to leave the game to make more. Thanks to your terrific web site, I located the recipe in seconds and off we went.... Thank you for such a wonderful site!
