Cookbook creator says: My mom made these very similar, she used the old standby, saltines instead of breadcrumbs or oatmeal as a filler.

This was a Lombardo Christmas tradition. Each year my mom and all my aunts would make these cookies and the various versions they created. It is a traditional Italian cookie, chocolate with chocolate chips and nuts. Some made smaller, some larger, drier, with nuts , without, with liquor without. they all were special and made with love. Christmas is not Christmas without them.

Below is my version ( I added more cream cheese and chips) To make it healthier you could use egg beaters and non fat cream cheese, no alcohol, etc.
