This is SO Much Better Than School

I'm in-between exams right now, so I figured I would tell you all about the last batch of goodies that I made for the Winter CAFP bakesale (I made these and these, and some of these too!). The only problem with these is that I know I got them off of a website or blog somewhere, but whose - I don't know! The closest version to mine I can find is this one at FatFree Vegan. Oh well, wherever they came from, THANKS! Everyone who had a taste declared these the fudgiest, most delicious bites of chocolate they've had in a long time, and when I told them they were whole grain and low fat they sold by the (half) dozen! I should have made more, in retrospect, but they were such a sleeper hit that I never could have predicted it!

With Christmas and other assorted holiday parties coming nigh, I bet these would be a hit on the cookie platters alongside the rum balls and sugar cookies. I'm sending it as another entry to FoodBlogga's Eat Christmas Cookies - and you can find the whole shebang here. I don't know how Susan does it all... she's keeping a running tally and the whole foodie world seems to be involved!
