These sweet treats are full of delicious, nutty flavor and the Fudgy Cacao topping does not hurt.  I made the poor decision to share these with my family and they were pretty much gone in 60 seconds.  Nobody questioned the fact that they are actually not too terrible for you either.  Enjoy these chewy, nutty, fudgy delights!.. I know I did.
