Fudge Ball Cookies

These are so good. If you make them, you should make a double batch. If I could eat them, I could probably down half of them! They are kind of like a fudge brownie. They have such a good flavor. Make sure you don't over bake them. I usually try to get them into balls pretty quickly because the mix starts to dry out a little. They make about 2 doz, but I make mine 1 oz, so I only get 23. You can also get the cocoa mix in cherry and also mint. And these are great with extra fine chopped pecans. You gotta try em! Hope you like them. Enjoy!
