Recipe Tips

High quality chocolate yields high quality results in recipes calling for chocolate. Chocolate is a combination of cocoa butter, chocolate “liquor” (pressed liquid from roasted cocoa beans) and sugar. Imitation chocolates often substitute vegetable fats for the cocoa butter, making a product with less chocolate flavor.

Flavour is very good! Used Kahlua.Found the filling did not set after about 4 hours in frig, so I put in freezer. Filling was also not as much as what appears in picture. Took to a party and everyone loved it!
