“This sounds like a fun recipe: I'm posting it for anyone to try; I personally haven't made these and since I'm not a big chocolate person, I probably won't. But I'd like to hear from anyone who does try this recipe; I hope it makes Easter special for someone! Obviously I'm going to guesstimate prep and cook times; time includes candies sitting overnight.”
