MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2012

These were a huge hit... However had trouble with putting the chocolate in the candy foils... The foils kept collapsing... So I ended up using the silicone mini muffin cups... Which made it larger than it was suppose to be... But so worth the effort... By request I am making it again this year...
