I can't wait to make this! I think this is the same as the recipe I used to make a few years ago that I had gotten from an almond ad in Better Homes and Gardens. I never copied it down and misplaced the recipe, and I've been missing these! They are rich, fudgy, easy to make, and always a hit everywhere I've taken them!
