Overall a great and tasty recipe. However since I'm pregnant and also have small children I was a bit leary about the eggs since they never get cooked so after I got the chocolate and egg mixture blended I heated it to bubbling for a minute or two so the eggs would not be raw. I waited for it too cool off before adding the marshmallows and peanuts and then stuck it in the fridge. It took way more than 2 hours for it to cool (I had to leave them in the fridge overnight) but that could be because I cooked it a bit more. Once they finally hardened they were wonderful and I gave them out as Christmas gifts.:) I will try this recipe again but maybe just omit the eggs next time since they don't seem to serve any real purpose that I can see anyway.

Well this was easy enough to make and looked sooo pretty. Unfortunately after 5 hours in the fridge they had set up but the chocolate was still really gummy so I threw them in the freezer. Even frozen the chocolate was still really sticky. I would love to try this again with maybe 1 egg instead of 2. Perhaps my eggs were to large and thats why I didn't set up. I didn't feel comfortable taking them like they were to share with others. Read More

When you do it just precicely right it comes out perfect! I have made it many times but sometimes it won't set I think I just needed to add a little more sugar though. And it really needs like 24 hours in the fridge to set. Great recipe otherwise. Read More
