Personal Notes:
Believed to be from Betty Crocker. Susan's Aunt Sally Bowen made these at holiday time. Every year Susan and her four sisters were invited to help decorate Sally's Christmas tree and enjoy hot chocolate and goodies like these melt in your mouth treats. Emily swears these are "awesome."
