yes they do, but that formula needs some further tweaking, imo. and those pretzel m&ms--what a fiasco that was! the chocolate-pretzel combination itself is a clear winner, but pu-leez, not in an m&m, guys. and, did you really think i wouldn't notice that my medium sized bag, once a one pounder, has shrunken down to a mere 11.40 ozs. of m&ms?...but i've got these grandkids....

If you'd like to make your own, here are two recipes from my to-try list. They both sound great:

Spiced Cocoa Roasted Almonds | gimme some oven

Cocoa Cardamom Espresso Roasted Almonds | my kitchen addiction

Thanks Merstar! That first one especially sounds good.

I also love Milo chocolate malt drink and Whispers or Chocolate covered toffee balls!
