I made these this afternoon, but I altered it a tad bit. I used 1 bar - Ghiradelli (4 oz.) bittersweet chocolate in place of the 6 squares of bittersweet baking chocolate, and added 10 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips. I only used 1 c. chopped pecans in place of the walnuts. Oh my, what a chocolate rush! They are truly awesome!!
