Happy New Year!
Melting Moments are one of the easiest and sophisticated cookies that you can make during the holiday season. This was one of the cookies I made for my son’s school party this Christmas. Melting Moments can store very well for a couple of weeks, thus you can make it ahead of time. Kids and adults will surely love these beauties :)
