Recipe by Whisper
I found this in a recipe book called Hometown Favorites from Pittsford NY. I haven't tried it yet, but wanted to post it here so I don't lose it. I looks like it should be delicious! I mean, you're combining chocolate and maple, 2 of my favorite tastes! Because I never made this, the prep time is a guess. Once I make it, I'll revise if necessary.
