MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2012

"I made these as a Valentine's treat for friends and family. Everbody loved them! My brother and his wife didn't tell their kids I brought them over so they wouldn't have to share! They were addicting and beautiful but took quite a while to make. The chocolate cups were the hardest part, by far. Next time I make these, I'm probably going to triple the amount of chocolate that it calls for and put the tins in the freezer overnight. Doing that will most likely make things easier."
