After my first bite of these chocolates, my eyes widened and I actually said to myself  “are you KIDDING me!??”. I couldn’t believe how delicious they were!

Never having made chocolates before, surprisingly it is fairly easy. You just need a little patience for the cacao to melt and that’s about it 😉
