I have made this recipe literally hundreds of times, for gifts and for selling at bake sales and catered events. I use a small mellon-baller to scoop the well-chilled chocolate mixture, then refrigerate again and dip in melted chocolate and decorate. These are FANTASTIC!!!

I made these about 18 years ago (I bought a little Land O Lakes recipe book in the grocery store). I thought they were delicious and I've made them a few times since. A bit messy to make, but delicious to eat.
