Compliments of Ellie Krieger with a few modifications.

If you love chocolate, especially dark chocolate you will love these.

I have made these a half dozen times in the past month sharing them with my mother-in-law who has diabetes. She is able to eat one a day and it doesn't raise her sugar levels. She is loving it.
