The direction on this messed me up a bit but it turned out ok. I read the directions a step at a time and melted all of the chocolate (the white, baking, and semisweet) all together. The directions aren't clear as to which chocolate you use at which time. I coated mine in milk chcolate b/c that's what I had left. they tasted great but clearer directions would be better.
