I made these this past weekend and very pleased with the result. I used half semi-sweet chips and half dark choc chips. One note, however...
Making 1-inch balls per the instructions, this recipe only makes 30 patties--half the 5 doz the recipe says. Maye the 5 doz yield is for a double recipe? I used a 1" disher, leveled off, in making the drops. The 2 C of choc chips was plenty for the dipping. I am keeping them in the fridge--they are a bit soft at room temp. I put them in the fridge on a cookie sheet and then stacked them in a bowl after they were chilled so they wouldn't stick together. ~ pen
