"These were so easy and delicious. I used roasted hazelnuts instead of pecans because that's all I had in my pantry. I can't wait to try them as written with pecans... I also think peanuts would be amazing....Or toasted coconut.... I think this is one of those simple recipes where the possibilities are endless!"

"Just a tip: I use a small crockpot to melt and dip. Easier and keeps the chocolate at an equal temperature. Not burning."

"Never made these but wondering if you could use the caramel sauce (ice cream topping) instead of the caramels? Thanks."

"This is the Best chocolate candy for 2014 * Everyone loved these rich, crunchy treats. Super easy to make. This recipe will adorn my Candy tray each year ! Delish. I elected to drizzle the chocolate across the small candy treats instead of dunking. It gave them a real nice Look. And everyone got a peek at the Inside, cause it was just as good as the Outside.

Yes think small.
Janie"
