Recipe by Rachie P
I got the original recipe for these off of a Bailey's Irish Cream website and then relaized later that they weren't chocolate & I didn't have Baileys! Soooo.... I created my own version and I have to say, they were a hit for my girls movie night. Adjust the amount of cocoa powder to your own chocolate needs. ;-)
