Holly's Notes:
I'm not sure where I found this original recipe. It might be Betty Crocker, but the recipe on their website is different, so I don't know. But, it's divine. The original recipe stated to bake 10 to 12 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched. I bake mine for 10 minutes. In my oven, that makes them chewy and gooey on the inside, but crisp on the outside. Just the way we like them. Almost like a truffle.


  1. Mmmm yes I love these! I made a batch last year with an extra box of pineapple upside down cake mix I managed to have in the cabinet. They were SO good!
