"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!
