Saw this recipe in the pack of kisses I bought around December 2012. I was apprehensive about the quality 8 months later, seeing that it had been languishing since. Its companion chocolates had since been consumed. But wow, lo and behold, it tasted like the pack was recently bought.
Some chocolates aren’t as considerate.
I haven’t yet tried the recipe. Sounds good, right?
