In Response to Re: TRISHA'S CROCKPOT CHOCOLATE CANDY:
I have made this a total of four different times....in my slow cooker/crockpot. It is delicious...some people I know just cannot leave it alone! It makes great Christmas gifts. I put the pieces in a small tin container, put a nice ribbon around it, and everyone says they love it! Not sure why the recipe calls for three hours. In fact, I never questioned it....I just did it. For one thing....it makes your house smell like a candy factory. Be aware that it makes a lot of pieces, depending upon the size you want. I usually use a tableware tablespoon, as opposed to a measuring tablespoon. And, I usually get around 90 pieces. Also beware, it doesn't last long once a person tastes the first piece!!

90 pieces!!!!! I think I would have to cut the recipe in 1/4. I knew that it would make a lot just from the volume listed in the recipe I just did not think about it really.
Will have to be done only when I plan on giving most of it away.
