    It is quite messy to make, but one that is completely worth it! I made it the first time as treats for some friends. Ever since then, they have continually been requesting them. Though they are bite-sized, they are so rich that you must make it at least 2 bites.

    This is one I made without nuts "because a few family members are allergic to nuts" and I added a espresso bean in the middle it was WONDERFUL! Everyone has asked for more to be made. I would have to say on a scale from one to 10 this is off the scale by a 20

    These were very very good. I got several compliments on them. However, they are SO messy to make. I put the chocolate mixture in the refrigerator to set, but it still wanted to melt in my hands not to long after I started making the balls. For this reason I will probably not make these again.
