    Easy to make and a real hit. I modified this by using one ounce mint chocolate chips and a nine ounce mixture of dark and milk chocolate chips. Also used honey roasted peanuts.

    I did this for the first time last year and it was a huge hit. I altered it by just using the dark chocolate and sprinkled crushed candy canes, candies orange peel or crushed red-hots on batches. It was fabulous. Also, starting in September, I begin buying 2-3 bars of the baker's chocolate at a time so that by early December when I am ready to cook, the cost has been spread over time and I can be generous!

    I love this recipe. It is so incredibly easy to make and people love it. I make it every winter and give it to co-workers and others as a holiday treat. I also made it for a dessert buffet party I had along with a bunch of other Martha recipes. Read more about it here

    I made it a few days before Christmas, it was okay. I think if I make it next time I will use milk chocolate instead, and use almonds or something else, the salt in the nuts melts and crystalized in the chocolate, and I just think it would taste better with milk chocolate and white chocolate and unsalted nuts

    So easy and delicious! I made three batches in less than an hour and packaged them in lovely snowflake bags tied up with glittery ribbon. I included the recipe on the tag. Fun to make with kids.

    I'm tempted to try this with almonds instead. Sounds delicious and easy!
