Easy (But Elegant) Chocolate Candy

Easy (But Elegant) Chocolate Candy created by Jonathan Melendez

These are so easy to make that the kids can help me prepare them. It is just as easy to make a wide variety of these fancy morsels which allows you to set forth an impressive candy tray. Also makes an excellent gift. I prefer to work in small batches but the recipe can certainly be doubled or tripled.

    A fun little "baking" project and the best part is that it's fully versatile. Use whatever you have on hand. Perfect for gifts as well!
