AWESOME!! I made these for my husband for Valentine's Day. I took the advice from other reviews and only used 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of chocolate chips. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips with one square of unsweetened chocolate and 2 tablespoons of shortening for the dipping chocolate. I halfed the batch and made one half as directed and the other half I added 1 1/4 teaspoons of raspberry extract. One thing I found really convenient was to use a toothpick to dip in the chocolate, that way you can let the excess chocolate drip off and you get a nice, even coating without having to touch it. I also dipped some in white chocolate. I transferred them to wax paper and into the freezer to harden. Then I decorated them with white chocolate, red candy melts (to distinguish the raspberry flavor) and dark chocolate. Drizzling the chocolate with the toothpick method didn't work for me. It was messy and didn't look very nice. I poured the candy melts and melted chocolates into plastic baggies, squeezed out the air and zipped them. I cut the very tip of one corner of the bag off, small enough to make thin lines. This worked wonderfully! They look professional, and taste amazing! Even though they took me almost 3 hours, it was well worth the effort!!
