This turned out like it was supposed to. Very easy. However, I like snickerdoodle cookies better than the bars. They come out better and the cinnamon and sugar is more spread out. This recipe the cinnamon and sugar was in the middle and didn't get throughout the whole dessert. Also, a little too much like cake or a brownie type of deal. I also make my snickerdoodle cookies with cream of tartar and they are so very soft and I can put as much cinnamon and sugar on top of them as I like. Don't get me wrong this is a good recipe if you like bars. I didn't in this case. Chocolate chip heck yeah but not snickerdoodle.

Marvelous Chocolate Truffles
This is a good recipe but the timing is all wrong! After melting the chocolate and putting it in the fridge it takes longer than 15 minutes for it to set up to make balls. 2 hours to be exact and even then it was still a little soft. I think 3 hours would be sufficient. I did learn a trick though. After scooping them on the cookie sheets and they are still too soft to form into balls. Stick them in the freezer for 5 minutes and then shape. Worked perfectly. I made a double batch of these. Everything worked fine except the timing part of it. Also, after dipping them in chocolate you really should sprinkle the toppings right then. Once they set its difficult to get toppings on. The finished product is good though. Delicious. Other reviewers didn't have much luck for some reason. They must have messed up somewhere. I didn't taste any shortening either. Using good chocolate and using exact measurements in the correct measuring tools is a must! Salt free butter too. I used Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips inside and Nestle Semi-Sweet on the outside. Crisco shortening. Heavy cream is a must too. Good recipe but needed to be tweaked a little.
