This is an old recipe of mine. I'm not sure where I got it from. I changed the fillings in them. This is one recipe made 4 ways. It can be made even 5 or 6 ways. Each egg has it's own flavor.
Peanut Butter, Coconut Almond, Chocolate chip,mint Orange with Orange zest. You may also make cherry,or any other flavor by adding different flavored extracts to dough,and chopped dried fruit. They are a nice addition to any holiday gathering. Simply roll in to balls instead of eggs. You are sure to please anyone with these at your holiday dessert table. Enjoy!
