“From the sales literature for the cookbook called "A Passion For Baking" by Marcy Goldman. I like that these have no cornstarch in them like some other recipes. These sound delicious and I am sure you could use your favorite chocolate bar. I am stashing this on Zaar to try with Reeses Cups. It is making me hungry just thinking about them! Just might have to break down and buy this cookbook.”
