    I made these for a pot luck vegetarian wedding reception and used egg substitute. I also added organic Cocoa to make them more chocolatey. At the end of the night they were all gone :) The bride loved them so much she asked for the recipe so she could make them to sell at their place of business! They run a board game cafe. Your recipes rock.
