I made these for my in-laws' Christmas celebration in 1994 & they were a tremendous hit! Even my father-in-law who rarely ate sweets, but loved coffee, ate more than a few! I didn't change a thing with the recipe. These are a regular feature in our Christmas candy assortment.

I make these every Christmas and my family loves them. I also gave them as gifts this year. They are easy to make and look beautiful.

The taste was great - but they were so soft it was impossible to work with them. I even tried freezing them so I could coat them, but they literally dissolved as soon as I put them in the chocolate to coat them. I tried both dark chocolate and white chocolate. No luck with either.

Way too rich. I love chocolate of any kind but found this to be super rich.

I made these at Christmas but ended up with a lot left over and gone to waste, people just found the coffee flavor too stong.
