In Googling around for ideas for a holiday treat auction, we ran across photos of these. They are fairly easy to make, yet a nice and somewhat different treat for the holidays. It probably would have helped if it weren’t 80 ˚F in December to make these, but such is life. The chocolate took a while to cool, making the process a bit slower than expected.
These are a very easy treat to get kids of any age involved in!
They kept fairly well for a few days in the fridge. But probably wouldn’t want to push it much beyond that. Once they are cool, store in a tupperware.
