I took these to church tonight. They were gone really fast. Someone told me they were delicious. I wished they made more in the batch. I will definetly double the recipe next time.

I used bittersweet chips instead and added liquer. I recommend chilling - I couldn't get them out of the muffin tin and the texture is much better after chilled.

I thought these were OK - but not great. I got a resounding 'so-so' by all of my 'guinea pigs'.
