“If your dying to have some chocolate and don't know what to make, this one will satisfy your sweet tooth in a New York minute! DELICIOUS! You can use any type of nuts you like. I often use walnuts, cashews, pistachios or pecans. The kids love these little buggers too! The preparation time does not include the 4 hour chill time in the fridge.”
