Great recipe! They are very gooey and chocolatey and delicious. Definitely keep them in the refrigerator like the recipe states until just before you serve them, because they do get gooier (is that a word?). Plus they taste good cold!
These are really yummy, I used chopped almonds instead of pecans, and if turned out great. I will for sure make this again!
