I tried this receipe but took the advice from one of the other reveiws by using less sugar and using milk chocolate rather than dark. Let me tell you, it was sooooooooo good that I took some to work and my boss, the fitness freak, said she wanted me to make these for her on her birthday which is not until August. Funny. But everyone, including myself, loved these. Thanks for the receipe Deb!!!
