Recipe by Troop Angel
This is from a cookbook called "Crazy for Chocolate" and I bought it just for this recipe (does that make ME crazy?), unfortunately I haven't had time to make these yet. Please let me know how they are...maybe that will be inspire me to get off my duff and make them myself! Note: the cooking time is the refrigeration times!
