I’ve been baking for years but never attempted candy until last year, that was funfetti fudge with a cake mix so this was my first. I made 2 separate batches, first one I had paced balls in freezer and the chocolate either cracked or a hole erupted and they leaked. So second batch I chilled in frig for 30 minutes, no cracks but I still have a leaky pin hole in about 1/2 the batch.

These are easy and delicious, melt in your mouth. We used milk chocolate for some and white chocolate for the rest.It makes a small batch, but was easy to double or triple.

Very good! I liked that they are not loaded with butter. They go together easily and quickly. I used semisweet chocolate chips for a dip.
