"This has been a favorite in my house since the very first time I made them. I made a batch for my family for Valentine's Day, and my daughter's comment was, "Who BUYS chocolates? These are amazing!" I use 5 oz. each of white and semisweet coatings, and I generally get about 32 candies out of one batch."

"These are so easy to make. I've been making them for my husband for Valentines Day for about 10 years.i did have problems with the wax paper sticking to the candy. I think it was because I left them in the freezer overnight instead for 15-20 minutes. Plus I now used those baking sheets and lightly sprayed butter spray oil on the baking sheets. They came loose so much better."

"I made the recipes exactly like it said but when I took the baking sheets out of the freezer and went to dip the candy in chocolate, every one of them was completely stuck to the waxed paper. I don't know how anyone can make these the way the recipe says."
