"I've made this recipe, and we love it. I've also tried these variations (separately, of course) in the cream cheese filling: a teaspoon of mint extract, a teaspoon of raspberry flavoring, and a teaspoon of orange extract. They all go well with the chocolate."

"Very easy to make! However, my family thought it was too "cream cheesey" so next time I think I'll double the sugar on the filling!"
