Austrian Chocolate Balls

l

A co-worker brought these cookies in today. I consider myself pretty knowlegeable about all things Austrian-never heard of them. They're a small mound cookie with a chocolate glaze. A Googe search brings up a number of recipies, but I'm more interested in figuring out if these are really an Austrian recipe. Anybody out there know anything about them?

    I think I have heard of something similar. We call them German balls and my wife loves them.

      Maybe check out the new "Field Guide to Cookies: How to Identify and Bake Virtually Every Cookie Imaginable" that came out this year for some info. Seems like they would be in there.

        So, NOBODY knows anything about these cookies? How far back does anybody remember seeing them? I'm just curious-NOT looking for recipies!

            dolores,

            All I saw at the link you provided was a recipe. Did I miss something?
