    This is the first year I've made this candy, but now it'll be a holiday tradition! So incredibly easy and delicious.

    This is just outstanding. I make it every holiday that comes and people rave. My husband even requested that I make some and just keep it in a baggie in the fridge so he could have a little whenever he wanted - it is very rich. I was hesitant about the salt but went exactly by the recipe and it is fab. Only hint is to keep it cool until time to put it out as it, like any chocolate bar, will get gooey when it gets warm.

    This is easy and awesome! I made it last year and was requested to make again. Yummy! You MUST use the Giradelli chocolate. I wasted a lot of money trying other brands.

    Excellent. Everyone was so impressed. The easiest thing I have ever made by far. A little pricey for the chocolate, but I got several really nice gifts out of it.

    This recipe is a for sure keeper as it is excellent for the ease of preparation, the taste of the chocolates/salt combination, and it’s presentation!

    This recipe is very good and very easy. I have made it several times now, usually for Christmas gift trays. After the first time, I did cut back on the salt to 3/4 teaspoon--just a personal preference thing. I have done it with good chocolate and inexpensive chocolate. It is good either way but better quality chocolate is worth the extra expense.

    This was so good and so easy! I could not find Ghirardelli bars so I used semi sweet Ghirardelli chocolate chips and another upscale brand white chocolate chips and arranged them in rows instead of squares. I also used almonds and pistachios (in 2 separate batches) instead of pecans b/c I had them on hand. The salt is such a nice touch. This is a recipe that I will keep for years to come - such a great treat or an impressive gift.

    I tried these over Christmas and they looked and tasted fantastic. I didn’t have Ghirardelli bars so I used regular bittersweet and white chocolate baking bars. I didn’t have much luck melting them in the oven, as the white chocolate burnt on the inside and the dark one melted completely. I tried again, melting the chocolates in separated bain-maries then dropping spoonfuls on wax paper. It worked and looked just as great!
