Tasty and easy. Sometimes I leave out the pecans for my nut-haters or switch up the kind of chocolate or even use milk chocolate almond bark, always delish. My one tip is to make them really small, smaller than you think, straight from the pot. They get a lot bigger after you add the chocolate, and the big ones really give your jaw a workout.
Very good and very easy to do
My son picked these out to try this year for Christmas cookies and they are so good!!!! They weren't very difficult and we had no problems with sticking or dipping and they turned out amazing! We will be making these part of our go to holiday (or anytime) treats.
My husbands favorite.
The taste of these, I call them turtles, was delicious but I was disappointed in the final appearance. I bake all the time so I know what I'm doing however, here's where I was kind of annoyed. The recipe said to microwave 3 cups of choc chips. Well I wish I had used the double boiling method instead of the microwave. I think the recipe should have said to melt the chocolate a cup at a time in the microwave, because in one second the three cups of chips became real hard. So I could not dip the stacks, I had to paste the softened chocolate on to each piece. The taste was still very good but the chocolate did not have the shine I wanted it to have and unless it was refrigerated, the candy would get soft sitting out in a dish. So I suppose my problem was melting the three cups at one time, I suppose. What to you think?
