If you do not have (or cannot find) chocolate extract, vanilla extract can be substituted. One could even play with other flavored extracts for a new taste sensation :)

I did a small batch of these, I only had a 125g pkt vanilla wafers which equaled just a little less than half the required amount. I had chocolate extract in the cupboard, I think this is the first time I've used it. I made half the amount of topping but it was too much so I have some leftover. This is a good "sweet-tooth" recipe. I got about 15 small squares for my amount of mixture. made for ZWT 4.
Almost anything chocolate I can find in my kitchen, so chocolate extract was not a problem! Followed your recipe right on down, & within an hour of cooling & cutting these buggers, they were ALL GONE! Great tasting & easy to put together! Thanks much!
