“This is an old recipe that is still popular just the way it was even though it has gone through many variations over the years. Every once in a while someone remembers them and wants me to make them. I use all variations of the chocolate kiss, or chocolate eggs. Not a bad calorie count with one cookie being 79 calories or 2 Weight Watcher points. Enjoy!”
