"The flavor was very good. But upon removing them from the fridge, they were so hard we couldn't roll them into balls. We let them sit at room temperature and they were still very hard to roll, but we did manage it. Next time I will roll into balls and then chill."

"These are insanely delicious and RICH! They are absolutely delicious but one or two is plenty for one person as they are so rich in dark chocolate flavor. I would make them again but only for a large group of people."
