Overall, these taste great! But I had some difficulty with the prep. I substituted cocoa and vegetable oil for the unsweetened chocolate, which I think was a mistake. When I mixed the ingredients, it turned into a thick, hard-to-mix glop and I wound up literally burning up the motor in my hand mixer trying to mix it. The mixture eventually separated: part of it was an impossibly thick chocolate, and part was an oily, yellowish substance (the butter, maybe, or the butter and oil?). Since my mixer was dead, I had to beat it by hand, which didn't work at all. I spread the mixture in the pan and chilled it, then cut it into 1/2" squares. They weren't pretty, but they tasted great, so I dipped them in dark chocolate. Yum.... I would make this again, but I would not substitute any ingredients and I would use a heavy-duty stand mixer instead of a hand mixer.
