Top Review by Chef Edlear

Oh my yes, these are very addicting, Jill. I used butter instead of margarine, but followed the recipe exactly as written. I used a small scoop to get consistent sized balls, and they turned out very pretty. Easy enough for doing with small children, if you have the chocolate and paraffin holding in a warmer crock. Thank you for providing this recipe, Jill R Q!
