  1. This is a great recipe! I know because I have it and I've made it not too long ago. My husband keeps asking for more, LOL you would think my kids would be the ones asking for them more. I have a chocoholic for a husband and these do quite nicely for him.

  2. i actually made this once, but it was a flop. the 2nd time was a bit better, but didn't look as nice as yours. :o( here's mine -

  3. Ooooh.. those look so yummy!
    I am getting a choco-craving just looking at them!
    Will have to try these out.

  4. these look like they were yummy!
