Add the Bread mix and mix until still a little crumbly. Bring together with your hands and pour onto plastic wrap and gather into a ball. Flatten into a disk and chill for 15 minutes in the freezer or 2 hours in the refrigerator.

    Roll out between plastic wrap to 1/8" thick. Cut with 1 1/2" cutter and bake in preheated oven at 350° for 9 minutes. Cool before dipping in chocolate.
