Tastes delicious but could not form ball - mixture was too thin even after chilling. Loved the taste just put into bowl and will serve it as a dip w/graham crackers.

Made this last year for a family Superbowl party and the kids literally had to fight their moms for it. I used light cream cheese and rolled half of the recipe in mini chocolate chips and the other in toasted pecans. Will be using to include in gift baskets this year. Fantastic recipe for chocolate lovers of all ages.
