"Chocolate Snappers" are definitely a family favorite! I think we call these cookies; "Chocolate Snappers" because everyone in our family snaps them up so quickly (At least that's what my sister tells me) OR maybe it's the cinnamon in these cookies! These cookies are easy to make and great year 'round!
Combine in bowl; 1 cup sugar, 3/4 cup soft shortening, and 1 egg; beat until creamy. Stir in 1/4 cup light corn syrup and 2-1 oz. Nestle's Choco-bake envelopes.
Sift the following and add; 1 3/4 cups flour, 3 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. salt. Shape in to balls using 1 level tablespoon for each.
