This recipe was passed on to my mom from her dear friend Erika Brooks who was an amazing cook, baker, and cake decorator in 1984. This recipe is based on the famous Frango® candy that was sold at the Bon Marche in Seattle, WA. I have substituted other extracts for different flavors. If I want a pretty look, I pipe the chocolate into small candy papers with a pastry tip. The result is a soft smooth chocolate candy.

I am the submitter of this recipe. A couple of things here....this is a very soft chocolate so it needs to be kept cool or it can melt very quickly. The original recipe called for two eggs but I switched to egg substitute (to avoid salmonella poisoning potential in raw eggs) and it still works great. Hope you enjoy this smooth and creamy chocolate treat. Read More

Totally yummy but I used 1/2 cup of dry Egg Replacer the powdered egg. The recipe left me second guessing whether I should have reconstituted the egg powder. In the end I had to add water so I am guessing the author used liquid egg substitute. Read More
