Okay, this has been a long time coming! A member for about 3 years and finally I have worked up the courage to make my first instructable… no need to rush these things.
This idea has been floating around in my head for about 2 years and I have only been motivated to try and create the recipe because of the chocolate competition. So here it is!
Please forgive me if I over instruct you... but I thought it better to give you as many details as possible to avoid confusion.
Finally, and most importantly... enjoy!
