Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

My 7 year old daughter made these and won Grand Champion at our county fair. They are filled with chocolatey mint flavor.
The mints totally melted when I put them on immediately. I let them cool a little while before putting them on so they could look like the picture.
I made these cookies with my 3 year old. We had a great time. So easy to make and very delicious. If making these with a young child, I would suggest the adult do the rolling of the dough while the child unwraps the chocolates.
I made these as a birthday present for my friend's son and he loved them. They were easy and looked like you spent lots of time and effort making them!
