“These are a great way to use up different types of chocolate and are delish and very chocolaty! I used the three different types of chocolate listed but in varying amounts - as a way of cleaning out the cupboard. They really need the hour refrigeration though (listed at the end of the recipe). Recipe source: Bon Appetit (December 2006)”
