    Great recipe! Added some cardamom to it too.  -  23 Sep 2013


    Great way to use up egg whites. I didn't bother with vanilla extract and they taste great even without the drizzled chocolate. Have made them many times, an excellent recipe. Thanks!  -  04 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    These turned out great. Absolutely delicious, we cant get enough of them and find ourselves going back to the tin for more. I drizzled chocolate on half of them and left the rest plain. Quick and easy to make. A definite keeper.  -  01 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
