Got this recipe from a magazine. It called for raspberries but I didn't have any so I used strawberries instead. Quite tasty! I think one could substitute white chocolate chips for the nuts and it would be delicious as well. These are so easy to make and satisfy a sweet tooth. Especially if you want something that's not chocolate. I know that doesn't happen very often for me but sometimes it's nice just to have something different.
