“The 12-step chocoholics program: Never be more than 12 steps away from chocolate!” ― Terry Moore
This incredible, mouth watering treat simply does not survive parties. And again, this is a super easy no bake recipe that you can craft for any occasion.

Such a succulent dessert, your only regret is that you didn’t make more (or add more bourbon). Essentially the recipe calls for crushing Bahlsen Choco-Leibniz into balls and rolling them in vanilla extract, bourbon, and corn syrup. The resulting surprise is both delightful and slightly alcoholic, so keep these out of children's reach. Otherwise watch them disappear when the adults come to the table.
