Oh, my gosh! Thank you. It is a good thing I don't have any cream cheese on hand or I would have to make these right away and then I would have to eat them and then I would be sick. But... I can save the recipe for another time when someone will be her to help me eat them. I love to share.

Oh my those look soooooo good! I must print off that recipe if you don't mind??? They just look so pretty and I'm sure they taste divine! I love anything with cream cheese in it! That apron in a jar is about the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. What a great gift!

I love your stuff! These look really yummy! I made the semi sweet version for Christmas and I am hoping I can find the candycanes somewhere so I can make these for my children's teachers and post them on my own blog. http://tipsfromatypicalmom.blogspot.com . I am wondering why you are not on facebook? That's how I follow my favorite blogs now, you can link your posts to automatically post to facebook, then it comes up on my wall. Look into it :) I rarely ever go to my blog account and look at my followed blogs anymore.

Also good with Kahlua or Bailey's in place of the extract. We have also made with raspberry or peppermint schnappe's.

These are so pretty and look so yummy! I made truffles for Christmas, but these sound so much better than the recipe I used.
