They are delicious even without the nuts. I usually dont add them because my girls dont like them.

I wonder if it would be just as good without the nuts? we have nut allergies in my home.

 I'm sure it would be fine without the nuts......especially if you're allergic to them.

 I bet these are good. You'd be proud of me..I tried a piece of chocolate yesterday (my chocoholic fil insisted lol) and it didn't taste chalky...still not the same as before. I told him it'd be my luck that the baby would hate me for it later on..lol..so far so good ;-)
