    Unfortunately this wouldn't hard set on it's own. (Chocolate would still rub off on your fingers). I had to put them in the freezer to get them to really set. The taste was ok but not amazing. Overall I didn't feel it was worth all the money since chocolate and nuts aren't cheap.

    I agree with the review below. These taste like very high quality chocolates that you would buy in an up-scale candy store. Absolutely delicious and super easy to make. Thanks so much for the awesome recipe!
