I made these things in college 20 years ago to impress girls; it worked, heck I even iimpressed myself. Not too hard to do, practice does make perfect -- love it. One thing: the quality (and price) of the chocolate you use does have a lot to do with how rich yours will turn out, so don't skimp on the choco! Very nice touch after a la-tee-da meal, but not a light goodie! Good stuff, great with a stiff espresso.
