You can use any type of nut you wish in the candy. For a darker chocolate taste, use all semisweet chocolate instead of part milk chocolate. But I think a bit of milk chocolate adds a delicious depth of flavor. You can use the same amount of semisweet and milk chocolate bars, chopped, in pace of the chips if you'd like.

Made this for an anniversary present. Went over extremely well and I would definately make them again. Equally good with Pecans
