It's got Nutella, what could possibly be bad??? This recipe didn't let me down - and I know it will be on my Christmas Favorites list! Made these exactly as written, except I had to leave out the nuts since I can't eat them. Also, we can't get sugar cones here, so I used plain "Pirouettes" type cookies that I broke into bite-sized pieces. Half the recipe made 15 candies, using a 1.5 inch ice-cream scoop, but that's because I left out the nuts. The scoop was fabulous, as the candy fell right out in a perfect dome into the wrappers, which were prepped in a mini-muffin tin. It's too warm here in Costa Rica, so they needed the fridge to set, and also for storage. For next time, I think the addition of chopped dried cherries or cranberries would be an excellent substitute for the nuts in this recipe. Thanks so much for posting a great candy recipe! Made for My Three Chefs 2013.
