I have not made this recipe but it was given to me when I was in Costa Rica several years ago and everyone that tried them loved them - I think you need a sweet tooth for this one.

I made this recipe for my food blog, Travel by Stove. It was heavenly. I mean, amazing. Yes, very sweet and rich (and soft ... don't expect to be able to slice it like chocolate fudge), but seriously delicious--a really wonderful indulgence.

It was a great recipe, very easy but it took a while until the mix was cool enough to make the balls. I added crushed walnuts to toss them in. very sweet and delicious!
