Have made these twice, used chocolate chunks first time and chocolate chips second, better mix with the chips. I also added craisins. They all disappeared rather quickly. Will make these time and again. Thanks

These are the best things ever. People are very impressed by them as they seem so luxurious but they don't realise how amazingly easy they are.

I make these all the time. Use food colouring ie make pink ones for little girls parties and sprinkle 100s and 1000s or similar. Add a few drops of strawberry flavouring. Or add almond flavouring and sprinkle with silver balls.

These are my new fav for every occasion... I do cut the sugar down and make them a bit smaller... Variations so far - dark chocolate; milk chocolate & freeze dried rasberry powder, white choc with the Rasberry (my fav); mint choc... The choices are endless and there is never any left on the plate no matter where I take them.
