Contest-Winning Chocolate Truffle Cookies

 Contest-Winning Chocolate Truffle Cookies
Here's a snack for serious chocolate lovers. These enticing cookies are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, somewhat bittersweet and very chocolaty. I usually make them to share at get-togethers...otherwise, I'd eat them all myself! I'm always asked for the recipe. -Delaine Fortenberry, McComb, Mississippi
