Chocolate Thingies

Jan Wolf


This candy is delicious and no one can eat just one piece! It is very addicting! I "adopted" the name "Chocolate Thingies" because a very dear friend of mine called them that. She passed a few years ago of lung cancer. Every time I make them, I now think of her and the sweet times we had eating them under the shade tree on her front lawn. Enjoy!
