This is one of my mothers recipes. I know it called for melted chocolate squares but I don't remember her ever using them on anything because she thought they were too expensive. She came up with the butter and baking cocoa. I've since tried with the squares and didn't like them as well.
We've had these in the family for years and know I share them with the neighborhood and family.
