Tuesday Treats: Turtle Cookie Balls

turtle-cookie-ballsI’m a huge fan of Turtle candies. When I saw this recipe in the Kraft Recipe Box, I figured it was worth tucking back in the ol’ recipe box for a time when I’m craving sweets. Haven’t made them but the recipe seems pretty straight forward and would make a great take-along treat for parties. Or Valentine’s Day. 😉
