My teen daughter makes these for get togethers and pot-lucks. ALWAYS a huge hit and we NEVER bring any home! Thank you so much for posting, they're awesome! Oh and if for some reason you don't have enough chocolate chips (can you imagine????), you can substitue candy melts for part of the chocolate chips. :)
Hi, can anyone tell me what a candy melt is? How does it differ from chocolate chips? (I am from the UK)
Candy melts are basically the same as chips but they com in a disk form. They come in a variety of colors so you can just melt them and use them right away, no need to fuss with coloring your chocolate. When you use candy melts you don't need to add the shortening because they contain oil in them already. You can check them out on Wilton.com or GlobalSugarArt.com.
