"I used this recipe to fill puff pastries. Didn't have dark corn syrup so I used light. It still turned out very well. I also used a dark German chocolate. It was easy to pipe into the pastries (I used my pampered chef decorator). Will use this recipe again!"

"I make this most Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners! I've made a few times for single Soldiers at the barracks whenever my hubby had duty and it has always been a hit :)"
