Chocolate Goobers

I’ve been making this recipe for about 20 years now and it never gets old. Everyone that has tried these delicious little things always ask me for a copy of the recipe.

So instead of keeping it hidden in my recipe book I wanted to share it with you. These are great for cookie swaps or for anything really. If you love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, then you will surely love these. :)

If you decide to make up a batch, stop back and let me know what you think, okay?
