I love chocolate Hermits. This is an old recipe written on a card that I had. I have a lot of recipes from my bridal shower from years ago. Each person brought a recipe, and attached it to their gift per instructions of my Mother In Law. I guess it was an old custom. This is a recipe from one of my guests that attended my shower. They are delicious. Enjoy!
