Reviews forCoconut Creme Chocolates
"This isn't a review. But 2 questions. Could you use coconut butter instead of shortening? And Almond extract instead of Vanilla? Just wondering! Thanks!"
"Very good. I used dark chocolate and sprinkled toasted almonds on the top."
"Awesome and easy recipe. Family and co-workers always asking me to make them at gatherings!!!"
"My mom made these last week. My kids loved them! So good. I think they would be good with an almond tucked in the middle."
