Coffee Bonbons

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"When I first sampled this unique cookie, I decided it was the best cookie I'd ever tasted! The coffee flavor and chocolate icing make it a delightful treat at buffets and church socials. I plan to share it with my out-of-state granddaughters next time they visit."
