I didn't have any pecans so I added a whole bag of peanut butter chips. Amazing! These are so quick & easy to make & super yummy.

Have made several times and received many compliments. I did use 2 oz semi sweet chocolate and 2 oz unsweetened chocolate instead of 4 oz semi sweet. Turned out great and have been asked for recipe.
