Oh WOW...... These are amazing! They are just so very good! Such an easy recipe which I followed exactly. I made these just a little bigger and got 25 gorgeous little morsels. DH thought they tasted a bit like Ferrero rocher's, then I tasted one .... and they really do! Truly scrumptious is every way, I have had to hide a few because they are disappearing rapidly. I will be making these again for sure.
