Notes: I am on a roll right now making some great things! Ok, I admit, some of them are easy, but it’s the holidays, and they all taste good!! These are wonderful, and the cinnamon adds that special kick. I would even add espresso powder, or orange zest. Yummy!! They are soft, filling, and totally give any girl that chocolate fix she needs. Boys, this is your ticket to help out a cranky girl!
