Toffee Noel Nut Balls

Today I am In Katrina’s Kitchen sharing a twist on an old favorite Christmas cookie, my noel nut balls, for her month long tribute to holiday cookies.  I love making these melt in your mouth, nut-filled cookies rolled in powdered sugar (AKA Mexican wedding cookies, pecan crescents, snowballs, etc), but to make them even more irresistible, I added bits of toffee.

My loyal readers will know that any nut filled cookie is persona non grata around here. Though the hubby has a few non-food allergies, his “allergy” to nuts is totally contrived due his personal preferences.
