  1. Very good. I had a bit of trouble with the dough not wanting to stick to the sheets but I worked it out in the end. VERY intense chocolate taste. I didn't use the white chocolate, but it would be good. I just decorated with some sprinkles before baking. Would be nice for xmas, everyone will like them. Makes a good quantity too.
