These are very rich , but very good. I also had trouble make the crispies stick together, but they were delicious!

Been making these for a number of years now--always a hit when I bring them to work. Hubby loves them too....when he can get his hands on them.

Everyone loved these! the only problem I had was that the crispies didn't seem to want to stick to the chocolate. May have to press them together harder or move faster so that the chocolate doesn't have time to firm up.

These are good! My ten-year old and her friends gobbled them up.
