      The recipe I have from TOH calls for 1 cup of semisweet mixed with 1 cup of milk chocolate chips, so that's how I made them. They were really good. One caveat -- kept in the fridge they were too hard to eat, but if left out they stuck to the plate!

      Love this recipe! I make this every Christmas since I saw the recipe in Taste of Home. Sometimes I make this candy anytime during the year just because my family and friends love it! Thanks for posting.

      I just made these for the weekend and they were delicous and they got all eaten up! I had this recipe marked from a Tast of Home Cooking School Cookbook and finally got around to making them. Glad I did!
