Choco-Nut Crunchies

Choco-Nut Crunchies cookie recipe

I was going through Grandma’s recipe boxes and came upon a tasty little cookie recipe. Mix up a batch of this dough now, refrigerate and bake later. It’s a great recipe to keep on hand for unexpected visitors, too. Mix up a couple of extra batches and freeze. The next time company pops in grab the frozen dough from the freezer, thaw and bake.
