A close friend and I made these together for Halloween while watching scary movies. These were alot of fun to make and I appreciate the fact that their so simple but end up looking so neat! I followed your directions exactly, only thing I did different was to busy red icing rather than making it. They turned out great and even tasted better than I thought they would, super rich though. I would definitely make these again! Thanks so much for the recipe :)
My loathing for peanut butter is pretty strong, but it mattered little because I made them for my childrens' Halloween parties at school. They each tried one pre- and post-chocolate and loved them. I added smashed Oreo cookies to the mixture before rolling them (and consequently had to add more PB) and everybody seemed pretty happy with them; the taste as well as the aesthetic. Thank you for a lovely recipe.
These came out to be really good. Everyone at work enjoyed them. Not one was left when the party was over.
