Karen, you have a candymaker's soul. Easy and delicious. I did want to mention that putting them in the freezer helped to harden the candies enough so they would pop off the parchment paper, before I coated them with chocolate. Also, the cold helped the chocolate set up very quickly. This will be a favorite treat to make forevermore!
