This is such a great recipe! If you need a quick recipe for today and you want something easy and no bake here is a recipe for you. This is an excellent recipe that’s super-fast. I had them completely made in less than 1 hour. I threw all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and the shortening in the food process, and mixed it all up.
I shaped the eggs (no very well I might add) stuck them in the refrigerator made up my chocolate then decorated and they were ready. I left them in the refrigerator until dessert! These are great! As you can see I am not a chocolatier!
