“The original recipe came from an old Canadian Living Christmas Book. I've made a few variations of these for Christmas gatherings and they're very popular. I've always used Bernard Callebaut's dark baking chocolate but I'm not sure if it's available anymore. Semi-sweet bakers chocolate can be substituted in place of the dark. Preparation time is approximate as I've not made this version and does not include chill time.”
