I made these, more as a garnish for our dessert than the actual dessert itself...there were 4 of us actually eating them. I used the unsweetened chocolate, so I added a touch of splenda for a little sweetness. I also used light cream instead of wwhipping cream, because that is what I had. These were delicious, and I will make them again as the sttar of the show! Thanks so much!
