Crocheted chocolate candy

Both of these candies are made with a 4mm crochet hook over the same basic ball pattern. The first is crocheted with two strands of yarn, one dark brown and one beige. The other is crocheted with two strands of dark brown. Change the colors and decorate them in different ways, and you have lots of different candy treats. The wrappers are also the same, but with different colors. One strand of wool/acrylic yarn and one strand of shiny metallic.
